Capitol Hill Day

For the first time since 2019, our dedicated volunteers are back in Washington D.C. to advocate for policies that improve access to care. But that doesn't mean that you can't help from home.

No matter where you live in the U.S., your voice can make a difference in Washington, D.C., and for the more than 8 million people living with psoriatic disease in our country.

Take Action

Message your legislators to help amplify the voices of psoriatic disease advocates in Washington, D.C., and receive an #NPFAdvocacy sticker.

This year, we are asking Congress to:

  • Support psoriatic disease public health funding
  • Cosponsor the Safe Step Act
  • Cosponsor the HELP Copays Act

Public Health and Psoriatic Disease

Learn from NPF's Sarah Buchanan and George Gondo about the Chronic Disease Education and Awareness Program at the CDC and how this funding improves awareness about psoriasis as an immune-mediated, systemic inflammatory disease associated with other comorbidities.

Ensuring All Copays Count

Listen to this Psound Bytes™ podcast as we break down an insurance trend called “copay accumulator adjustment programs.” These programs make it harder for patients to afford their treatments because copay assistance is no longer counting toward the deductible or out-of-pocket maximum.

Why NPF Capitol Hill Day Matters

A special message from NPF advocates

A selfie of Savanna Braun, NPF volunteer

I participate in Capitol Hill Day because it lets me meet with my members of Congress and explain my concerns with and wishes for America’s healthcare system. Lawmakers can’t make good policy that serves their constituents unless they understand what we really want. - Savanna Braun

Headshot of Howard Chang, NPF Volunteer

I participate in Capitol Hill Day because it lets me share my story and advocate for a more just healthcare system. As someone who has participated in NPF advocacy efforts that brought important step therapy protections to my home state of California, I know just how much our voices can accomplish when we work together. - Howard Chang

Headshot of Jordan Ellefsen, NPF Volunteer

Participating in Capitol Hill Day lets me speak on behalf of members of the community whose perspectives would otherwise go unheard in Washington. With the virtual format of this year’s meetings now letting me participate from home, it’s easier than ever to make my voice heard. - Jordan Ellefsen
