CMS: Don’t Let Insurance Take My Copay Assistance!
The Centers for Medicare Medicaid Services has proposed new health insurance regulations that will allow insurance companies to pocket our copay assistance and not count it towards our annual deductibles.
We need your help to protect patients from new anti-patient insurance rules contained in “Notice of Benefit and Payment Parameters Rule for 2021.” The proposed regulations will allow insurance companies to pocket our copay assistance and not count it towards our annual deductible.
- I support copay assistance programs, which reduce patients’ out-of-pocket health care costs.
- The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services should adopt insurance regulations that support patients. All types of copays should count towards a patient’s annual limitation on cost-sharing, including drug manufacturer coupons.
- I urge CMS to remove the insurance copay accumulator loophole in “Notice of Benefit and Payment Parameters Rule for 2021, § 156.130 Cost-sharing requirements.”
