Ask your Representative to Please vote “Yes” on Senate Bill 142
Many patients who require oral anti-cancer treatment can’t afford the medications they need because many drugs are not equally covered by their insurance companies.
However, a recently introduced piece of legislation, Senate Bill 142 (SB 142) would put much-needed treatment back in the hands of Alaska’s cancer patients. This bill would improve the lives of cancer patients and their families by requiring insurance companies to cover patient-administered and IV cancer treatments equally. Without this, many cancer patients are paying high out-of-pocket co-pays and taking on a crippling financial burden, just to receive their life-saving medicines.
Your Representative’s support is crucial to the success of this bill that would make much-needed treatments accessible to cancer patients across Alaska.
