Across Georgia,

people are struggling to get the medications they need...

even though they

have health insurance.

Why?

Because of step therapy & other barriers to care.

What

is step therapy?

An insurance practice requiring patients to try and fail on medications before they can obtain the one prescribed by a doctor. 

"When our son, Brannen, was diagnosed with  Ulcerative Colitis (UC), we struggled for 10 months to find a medication that was effective in treating his unbearable symptoms.

 

Just six months later, our insurance company, stated that the medication would no longer be covered by insurance."

Brannen's mother, Melissa Whirledge
