We Are So Close...

Dear [Decision Maker],

As your constituent and a volunteer with the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network, I would like to thank you once again for the House passage of H.4929, An Act relative to step therapy and patient safety.

The Senate passed a similar version on Tuesday. The Senate keeps most changes made by the House. The Senate does return to the original bill's language with regard to the time required for insurers to grant or deny step therapy exception requests (72 hours or 24 hours in the case of emergency). This is critical for patients and a key part of this legislation.

I respectfully ask that you support the House agreeing to the Senate version with the 72/24 hour timeline.

Thank you for all your support thus far. I look forward to hearing from you on this issue.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
