Support the Safe Step Act

Please email your representatives to show your support of S. 464, the Safe Step Act, a bipartisan bill that seeks to reform an insurance practice known as step therapy.

People with chronic illnesses often experience step therapy in their care journey. Step therapy, sometimes known as “fail first,” is a tool used by insurers that require patients to try a drug, or drugs, that are preferred by the insurance company before they can access the therapy originally prescribed by their physician. When inappropriately used, step therapy can undermine the clinical judgment of health care providers and put patients’ health at unnecessary risk. Many patients must try multiple drugs before finding one that works for them, so the ability to remain on a drug that works is critical.
