'Step Therapy' Protections Pass in Maine!
Protections for patients subject to step therapy just passed in Maine, and was signed into law by Governor Janet Mills!
Before the new law, step therapy rules allowed insurers to require patients to try the less expensive drugs first, before moving on to a more expensive options- which sometimes meant a patient would ‘fail first’. Failing first is a dangerous practice and can force vulnerable patients to spend time in pain or suffer an injury.
Thank you to Janet Mills for signing this bill into law!
