The Patient Pocket Protector Coalition brings together a diverse group of chronic illness stakeholders to form a unified coalition that advances our purpose through political action. With a united voice, policy insight and actionable engagement we are sharply focused on addressing Pharmacy Benefit Manager (PBM) rebate reform to protect the pockets of patients burdened with the high cost of managing their health every day.
We work with state legislators to introduce patient-first policies addressing the financial burdens of the 133 million Americans living with chronic illnesses, beginning with rebate reform.
The Patient Pocket Protector Coalition holds politicians accountable for out-of-pocket costs and unregulated Pharmacy Benefit Managers.
The purpose of the Coalition is to unify chronic illness advocates, build legislative support to drive policy change and tackle financial toxicity impacting out-of-pocket patient costs.
The Patient Pocket Protector Coalition believes that these rebates should be shared with patients, and have prioritized the following legislative principles
A minimum of 80% of rebates and discounts must be passed through to patients at the point of sale
All copays that are a percentage of price must be calculated based on the price net of rebates and discounts
Civil penalty per violation to be levied by the state department of insurance or other entity for noncompliance by an insurer
It is time to fix the financial burden placed on people living with chronic diseases.
It is time to protect patients’ pockets by holding politicians accountable for out-of-pocket costs and unregulated Pharmacy Benefit Managers.
