On Thursday, August 6, 2009 Sen. John D. Rockefeller IV (D-WV) introduced S.1630, “The Affordable Access to Prescription Medications Act of 2009.” The Lupus Foundation of America applauds and supports Senator Rockefeller for creating this important legislation which will provide Americans with chronic diseases vastly improved access to life-saving medications.
“The Affordable Access to Prescription Medications Act of 2009” will protect people with lupus and other chronic diseases from high out-of-pocket expenses for their prescription drugs.
There are several potential new treatments in the near-term pipeline that may provide a better quality of life for people with lupus. But these anticipated new treatments will mean nothing if people with lupus are not able to access them because they are cost-prohibitive. For example, some people with multiple sclerosis, another autoimmune disorder, may pay out-of-pocket in excess of $800 a month for access to new medications.
For people with serious or life-threatening conditions such as lupus, S. 1630 will provide greater access and affordability for necessary prescription treatments. We encourage you to join us in supporting this vital legislation by visiting our legislative action center (http://donate.lupus.org/site/R?i=89Vont8WPXvQAE6au7H2Dw..) and urging your Senators to cosponsor S. 1630.
Thank you!
