To The Daily Sun,
On April 11, 2019, the federal step therapy reform was introduced to the House of Representatives by Raul Ruis (D-CA) and Brad Weinstrup (D-OH) as the Safe Step Therapy Act (HB 2279). The reforms proposed in this legislation will make step therapy a more TRANSPARENT process, that gives doctors the power to OVERRIDE step therapy decisions when medically appropriate and that takes into account personal MEDICAL HISTORY.
The Arthritis Foundation needs your help in teaching Congress the importance of step therapy and calling on our legislators to sponsor this important piece of legislation, which has gone to the Education and Labor Committee. Please take a few minutes to send your letter of support to our representatives in the House through the Arthritis Foundation’s Action Center @ http://bit.ly/H.B.2279.
