Support Restoring the Patient's Voice Act

Email your legislators and ask them to support HR 2077, Restoring the Paitent's Voice Act. This bill would establish patient protections in insurer step therapy protocols. Step therapy is a practice in which health plans require patients to fail first on an insurer-preferred medication before providing coverage for the physician-prescribed medication. According to a 2016 Foundation survey of our constituents, approximately 40% of respondents with IBD had experienced step therapy. Most felt that it delayed treatment, and for some, it led to worsened health outcomes and additional costs.

This legislation would establish circumstances in which patients would be exempt from step therapy when medically appropriate. Email your Representative and ask them to co-sponsor HR 2077.
