Equal Health Care Now!

Out-of-pocket costs for critical medications are on the rise for patients across Nevada, as health insurers and pharmacy benefit managers are increasingly requiring high coinsurance amounts—sometimes hundreds or even thousands of dollars out-of-pocket for a single prescription. In fact, the average out-of-pocket cost for a specialty medication in Nevada is $457 for 30-day supply. 

Insurers are increasing the out-of-pocket costs by utilizing specialty tiers, which require coinsurance rather than a fixed, manageable copay. In fact, 96% of the plans in the Nevada Exchange placed all medications within high-risk disease states on a specialty tier.

Specialty tiers apply most often to Nevadans living with chronic, debilitating and life-threatening illnesses. These practices run counter to the very concept of insurance.

Patients are increasingly facing discrimination in their healthcare plans. We've had enough - have you?
