  What's new with NPF advocacy?  
  State updates  
  Wisconsin became the 27th state to make step therapy protections law! If you live in Wisconsin, send a thank you message to Gov. Tony Evers and your representatives.
Have you ever experienced step therapy or prior authorization when all you wanted was the medication your doctor prescribed?
  Federal update  
  August is the perfect time to schedule a meeting with your federal representatives because they are home ("in district") over the congressional recess. Interested in an in district meeting? NPF will help you schedule the meeting and prepare your talking points. 

While 27 states have made step therapy patient protections law for marketplace health plans, there is still work to do at the federal level to expand these protections to employer health plans.  
Tell Congress why protections from potentially harmful step therapy tactics are important to you and ask your representative to support the Safe Step Act (H.R. 2279).
