#AB347 puts prescribing back in the hands of doctors and their patients without inappropriate interference from insurers. Please support #steptherapyreform in #California! @drarambulaAD31 @SenToniAtkins @ScottWilkCA

According to a recent study, Under H. R. 3, only 2 of the 16 medicines produced in California from venture partnerships would have come to market, an 88% reduction. Californians need access to lifesaving treatments and cure thanks @RepCardenas for putting patients first.

Drug pricing proposals in #HR3, including foreign reference pricing and #medicare drug price negotiation, threaten lifesaving treatments and cures. Thank you, @ScottPetersSD for standing up for CA patients.

We commend @RepKatiePorter for raising concerns about the Quality Adjusted Life Years (QALY) methodology. We know the QALY discriminates against Californians with disabilities, patients with cancer or a rare disease, and seniors. Federal policymakers must avoid ICER and the QALY.

Thank you Assemblymember Marc Levine @MarcLevine for introducing HR56 proclaiming September 2021 as Prostate Cancer Awareness Month in California.

“Unfortunately, sometimes that critical medication selection is taken away from physicians by insurance companies that want patients to try other medications first” #steptherapy #AB347 @CalMatters https://bit.ly/3quDS2y

California lawmakers should address health disparities, stem rise in prostate cancer https://pajaronian.com/california-lawmakers-should-address-health-disparities-stem-rise-in-prostate-cancer/ via @pajaronian support #AB1520 @bretanmd

Success: Assembly Bill 1520 passes Health Committee Hearing in 10 to 0 vote. Our first hurdle to no cost PSA Screening in Calif. Thank you to bill sponsors Assemblymember Marc Levine @AsmMarcLevine and Sen. Ben Allen @senatorbenallen and all who helped with your support.
