ACT TODAY by 5 pm Patients Need Your Help!

Your help is needed now more than ever.

Patients Are Being Adversely Affected.

Health & Safety Are At Risk.

 “Prescriber Prevails” protections for Medicaid has a major turning point TODAY at 5pm at the NYS Assembly & Senate Health Budget Conference Committee. 

The Health Budget Conference Committee will be conferencing and discussing “prescriber prevails” today at 5 p.m.

 We MUST contact legislative offices TODAY to demand protection for patients and support for “prescriber prevails” in the NYS Budget. 

We are hearing that your advocacy efforts are being noticed.  Let’s keep up the pressure!

 Patients have been forced off their medications by managed care insurance companies.  This is WRONG! Doctors should have the final say in medications to ensure individualized care and safety! Too many patients have already suffered. “Prescriber prevails” must be restored. 

 Please share this Action Alert with your membership via Email, Facebook, and Twitter. The more calls we make, the closer we get to winning this battle.

 Your help is greatly appreciated. We are almost there! Thank you.
