Cap the Co Pay

The American Liver Foundation Great Lakes Division is part of a growing group of organizations joined to combat the skyrocketing out-of-pocket costs insurance companies place on lifesaving medications for people with chronic diseases. The Illinois Coalition for Access to Affordable Medication is on a mission to pass Illinois Senate Bill 3395 that would limit out-of-pocket costs for drugs – making vital medications affordable for those who need them.

Please visit the website – www.capthecopay.org – to learn more about the issue, join the coalition, and urge your Illinois Senator to support SB3395 to cap the co pay.
