Connecticut legislators have been considering legislation that would prevent health plans from dropping medications from coverage or increasing their out-of-pocket costs after the plan year has begun. This legislation would prevent the nonmedical switching of stable patients.
On May 20, 2019, Aimed Alliance joined a sign-on letter authored by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, requesting that the Connecticut legislature’s leadership allow HB 6096 to be brought to the floor for a vote before the end of the legislative session. This sign-on letter also requests that legislators refrain from amending the legislation to weaken it. In addition to Aimed Alliance and the National MS Society, local advocacy groups such as the Connecticut Legal Rights Project and the Connecticut State Medical Society also joined the letter.
