  What's new with NPF advocacy?  
  Federal updates  
Safe Step Act (H.R. 2279) - The Safe Step Act, which creates an exceptions process for step therapy, currently has 40 bipartisan cosponsors. Tell your Representative that you support this bill. 

Federal research funding - This month, the House Appropriations Subcommittee bill included a new section that would give $3 million for grants to expand research opportunities for prevention, education and public awareness for conditions "such as...psoriasis." This is great news, but there's still work to do in the Senate. Tell your Senator why psoriasis research funding is so important.
  State updates  
Step therapy reform was signed into law in Georgia, Oklahoma, and Washington. The Delaware step therapy reform bill awaits the governor's signature.

Step therapy efforts continue in eight states(MA, ME, MN, NC, OR PA, RI, and WI). Have you experienced step therapy? Get involved with our efforts.

Out-of-pocket efforts continue in Illinois and New Jersey. Join our efforts to reduce the burden of high costs.
