NJ: Reform Step Therapy
Patients need the right medicine at the right time
Step therapy delays cancer care. Current step therapy policies require patients to try, and fail, on one or more prescription drugs chosen by insurance companies and not their healthcare professional.
- 1 in 3 patients and caregivers report experiencing delays in cancer care
- A majority of physicians report delays in care due to policies like Step Therapy
- Reformed step therapy means ensuring that it is safe for patients, is clinically grounded and transparent to patients and health providers
Now is the time to reform step therapy in New Jersey. I call on you to support legislation that ensures patients' safety by voting "yes" on S3051.
