TELL YOUR LEGISLATORS: COSPONSOR THE ACCELERATING KIDS’ ACCESS TO CARE ACT
Children with complex medical needs such as leukemia and other pediatric cancers often must travel outside of their home state to receive necessary care. Yet, in order for an out-of-state provider or care team to be approved to treat the child, the provider must go through screening and enrollment processes in the child's home state Medicaid program. This causes burdensome, unnecessary delays for time-sensitive care that can lead to a child's condition worsening.
MAKE HEALTHCARE AFFORDABLE FOR MEDICARE CANCER PATIENTS
No one should ever have to choose between life-saving medication and paying their bills. Yet that's exactly what so many blood cancer patients on Medicare Part D are dealing with due to extremely high out-of-pocket costs. Send your senators and representative a message telling them to support legislation that puts a cap on out-of-pocket costs and allows Medicare Part D enrollees to distribute upfront out-of-pocket prescription costs evenly.
TAKE ACTION TO MAKE ENHANCED ADVANCE PREMIUM TAX CREDITS PERMANENT
Advance Premium Tax Credits (APTCs) help low- and middle-income consumers lower the cost of their monthly health insurance premiums. Congress made healthcare more affordable and accessible by expanding APTCs with the American Rescue Plan Act, but those changes are only temporary. Tell your senators and representative to permanently secure enhanced Advance Premium Tax Credits passed in the American Rescue Plan Act to keep healthcare affordable for every patient.
