Across Georgia, people are struggling to access and afford the health care that they need.
Harmful insurance practices and middlemen who work between health insurers and drug manufacturers called pharmacy benefit managers, or PBMs, are limiting access to health care for patients and making it harder for Georgians to get the care they need.
Rx in Reach is committed to advocating for legislation that ends financial and discriminatory barriers to lifesaving medications and treatments that Georgia patients continue to face.
The Rx in Reach GA Coalition consists of members from 48 health-centered organizations representing physicians, nurses, patients and community organizations, advocating for polices and legislation that ends financial and discriminatory barriers to securing vital medical care, treatments and medications.
"I have been diagnosed with narcolepsy due to MS, and rely on a daily medication to stay awake. After getting a new insurance plan, I couldn't refill my medication and was told to go through a mail-order pharmacy. It took three months of making regular calls between the mail-order pharmacy and my doctor's office, and mitigating unnecessary mistakes to get my prescription filled. "
