Non-Medical Switching is threatening to change your prescription medication coverage in the middle of your health care plan enrollment year. Call and email now to support Senate bill S.5022-A and Assembly bill A.2317-A. This bill prohibits commercial health insurance plans from switching your medication coverage during an enrollment year.
Non-Medical Switching means commercial insurance plans often stop covering drugs or they move drugs to new formulary “tiers” that result in higher out of pocket costs for patients. This practice can put the stability of a patient’s health at risk, and can be cost prohibitive due to emergency room admissions, hospitalizations, and complications.
Legislators need to know you support Senate bill S.5022-A and Assembly bill A.2317-A. The legislative session ends on June 21st and your voice is critical. Please call and email your legislator today!
