The Michigan Senate is considering House Bill 4353 to protect patients’ access to co-pay assistance that counts, so they can afford the medicine they need. Fill out the short form below to lend your support, and scroll below the form to learn more about this important issue.
Patients across Michigan rely on copay assistance from medicine manufacturers and nonprofit organizations to afford the medicine they need to survive. Now health insurance companies are jeopardizing the benefit of copay assistance.
Health plans have begun instituting “copay accumulator adjustment programs.” These programs mean insurance companies refuse to count copay assistance towards a patient’s annual deductible and out-of-pocket maximum.
Patients pay first with copay assistance – then again from their own pocket. This is a discriminatory practice!
The Michigan Senate is fighting back, considering House Bill 4353 to ensure insurance companies count all copayments towards patients’ out-of-pocket maximums. HB 4353 means helping patients afford the medicine they need.
