“Prescriber Prevails” Last Chance!

“Prescriber Prevails” Last Chance!

Please Call Speaker Silver, Governor Cuomo and Majority Leader Skelos by 1:30pm TODAY.

 The Health Budget Conference Committee meeting that was originally scheduled for Monday at 5pm and then postponed will finally occur at 1:30pm today.  This is our last chance for both the NYS Assembly and Senate to include “prescriber prevails” in the NYS Budget for Medicaid patients.

 Your efforts are working.  We are in the final hours of this battle for Medicaid patient protections.

 We know that there are other access to care issues that you are working on and we are extremely thankful that you have weighed in on this.  Thank you for all your calls made so far.  Please work to have your organization and members continue to weigh in today.

 HELP us keep the pressure on for a few more hours!


“Prescriber prevails” must be included in the NYS Budget!

 Medicaid Patients Deserve Protections!

 It is only safe for patients for medical providers to have the final say in medications and treatments!
