CT House of Representatives passes House Bill 5384 to the Senate 05/08/2018
The Connecticut House of Representatives passed H.B. 5384, "AN ACT CONCERNING PRESCRIPTION DRUG COSTS", on Friday, May 4 with a vote tally of 149 YEA, 0 NAY, and 1 ABSENT/NOT VOTING.
The Epilepsy Foundation of Connecticut strongly supports this legislation as it would establish new transparency requirements for state agencies and various entities that impact the prices of prescription medication.
Like many of our partners in the patient advocacy community, we are concerned about high cost-sharing that makes it hard for people living with epilepsy and other chronic conditions to access the medications and services they need. We support policies that create greater transparency in the health care system and that reduce or limit cost-sharing for the medications and services that our community relies on to maintain their quality of life.
The bill now heads to the Senate awaiting action. URGE YOUR STATE SENATOR TO SUPPORT THE PASSAGE OF H.B. 5384!
