Each year, the NPF and our dedicated volunteers visit Washington D.C. to advocate for policies that improve access to care. In this virtual world, we are using online tools to speak directly with lawmakers.
This year, we are asking Congress to:
- Address pandemic-related access and funding challenges, including extending inter-state access to telehealth access beyond the public health emergency and supporting the RISE Act (H.R. 869 / S. 289) to jumpstart NIH research projects that were stalled due to the pandemic.
- Cosponsor the Safe Step Act (S. 464 / H.R. 2163) to create commonsense guardrails for step therapy.
- Support a Medicare Part D Out-of-Pocket Cap and smoothing mechanism to reduce out-of-pocket costs for seniors, especially those taking biologics. Learn more.
