Bring the Massachusetts Specialty Tiers bill to a vote by tomorrow!
When a life-saving cancer medication falls into a "specialty tier," cancer patients often see the cost of that medication skyrocket, costing hundreds or even thousands of dollars per month for a single drug. No patient should have to choose between paying for their cancer medication or paying for basic necessities.
There’s a bill pending in the state house that would limit the total amount that insurers may require patients to pay each year for their medications. But there’s not much time left to get the bill to the governor’s desk. Urge your representative to ensure that S.2293 receives a vote immediately. Patients can’t afford to wait.
