Fail First and Patient Safety

Fail First prevents patients from accessing the treatment prescribed by their health care provider by making them first try and fail on one or more alternative drugs. Fail First can make patients sicker by delaying access to the most effective treatment. The time spent on trying and failing one or more medications can lead to disease progression and increase health care costs. This bill would ensure Fail First protocols are based on clinical guidelines and provide for a transparent exceptions and appeals process for health care patients and providers.
