Healthcare Justice: Making Medicines Affordable! Fighting Health Insurance Company Denials! 

 

Last call: Please fill out our short survey  about the 8  prescription drugs the Maryland Prescription Drug Affordability Board has named for its cost review. We have  to send them the survey results this Wednesday! The Board needs to hear from everyday Marylanders who want them to take this critical next step to lower drug costs. Here is the list of eight. Feel free to add other expensive medicines to our survey.

 

Support the Care Over Cost Campaign’s Fight Against Greedy Health Insurance Companies!          

 

➢ Please sign and share our petition to the Senate Finance Committee to urge action against UnitedHealth Group, the largest and most profitable insurer in the country, to stop denying and delaying people’s care.  

 

➢ Come volunteer with us! It’s fun, it’s easy and it makes a difference. This Saturday May 18th we’re door knocking in Baltimore to talk to community members about their healthcare issue concerns. For details or  if you have other ways you can help or are part of a group that would like to learn more, contact Patty  

News You Can Use about Maryland and elsewhere

 

This pudding has no theme this week. More states are suing fossil fuel companies for climate change effects; Maryland is getting high marks on LGBTQ+ and data privacy protection; reaching for climate goals here and elsewhere keeps getting more complicated; and the tense standoff between Israel and its number one arms supplier (that would be US) gets tenser. More going on than you might imagine, so dig in. It's all News You Can Use.
