Take Action Against PBM Greed!

Support SB 524 (Skinner) opposing patient steering practices

The California Pharmacists Association and the AIDS Healthcare Foundation are urging you to please send your Assemblymember a letter of support on SB 524 (Skinner).

CPhA is sponsoring SB 524, which would severely limit the instances whereby health plans, insurers and their contracted PBMs would be able to engage in “patient steering” which is defined as requiring patients to fill their prescriptions at a particular pharmacy when there are other pharmacies located within that network that would also be able to fill that prescription.

Contact your Assemblymember today and urge them to vote YES on SB 524.

Make vaccine distribution a priority!

While the Biden Administration is to be applauded for its initial steps toward a quick and equitable vaccine distribution, we need to do more, including the funding necessary, to meet the scale of the global crisis while saving lives, crushing the virus everywhere, and reinforcing America’s place as a leader in ending this deadly pandemic.

Please, take a moment right now to help encourage your members of Congress to push for more action on vaccine distribution. Lives are at stake!

Stop Blocking Drug Pricing Reform!

Shamefully, Reps. Rice, Schrader, and Peters decided to side with their Big Pharma donors and against their constituents when they voted against the section of the Build Back Better Act that would lower prescription drug prices in the Energy and Commerce Committee this afternoon. This created a tie vote in the committee which blocked the section from advancing through the Energy and Commerce committee. The Ways and Means Committee, however, did vote to approve that section of the Act that would lower prescription drugs, so, while this was extremely disappointing and shameful, the House Rules committee can still advance drug pricing reform section passed by the Ways and Means Committee in the final bill that will move to the House floor.

Given the slim Democratic majority, we must ensure that Reps. Rice, Schrader and Peters feel the political heat for this sellout behavior now before the bill advances to the floor.

We need to stop these representative from blocking this important legislation! Please take action today!

Thank the President for His Waiver of COVID-19 Vaccine Patents 

With the devastating spread of COVID-19, AHF asked that President Biden waive the patents on the COVID-19 vaccine. The world needs access to the vaccine if we are going to make meaningful change in the global fight against COVID-19.

AHF advocated and Joe Biden listened. In a recent decision, President Biden supported the temporary Tripps waiver for COVID-19 patents at the World Trade Organization, granting much needed access to the vaccine for countries around the world. This is a meaningful and necessary step to curb the spread of COVID-19.

Please take a moment to send a message of gratitude to President Biden. It only takes a few minutes to send a message, but will show the president how his actions were well received on this issue.
