The Chronic Care Policy Alliance is disappointed in the recent Trump Administration ruling allowing insurers to exclude copay assistance. Without copay assistance lessening the impact of high out-of-pocket costs and deductibles, patients will now experience additional barriers to accessing the medications they need. During the COVID-19 pandemic, this ruling is a major setback for the vulnerable patients who are not getting stimulus checks, are losing their insurance, and paying out-of-pocket for their health care.
