What's new with NPF advocacy?  
  October 29 is World Psoriasis Day!  
  As a community, we can educate our lawmakers about the far-reaching impacts of psoriatic disease and the need for personalized treatment plans.

This World Psoriasis Day, write your federal lawmakers and urge them to support the Safe Step Act to create common-sense patient protections for step therapy.

  Safe Step Act Introduced in U.S. Senate  
  On Sept. 26, the Senate Safe Step Act (S. 2546) was introduced by a group of bi-partisan senators. Building on the success of step therapy reform that has already passed in 25 states, the Safe Step Act would extend step therapy protections to the over 150 million Americans who receive health insurance through their employers. 

Tell your federal lawmakers why the Safe Step Act is so important to our community.
