The Chronic Care Policy Alliance (CCPA) is pleased to share that the U.S. Justice Department moved to withdraw its appeal of the ruling that forced certain health insurers to count copay assistance towards the annual limit on patients’ out-of-pocket costs.
The withdrawal of the Justice Department’s appeal is a major win for patient advocates. CCPA – along with 29 other organizations – signed onto the amicus brief led by Aimed Alliance. The amicus brief supported the lawsuit filed by the HIV+Hepatitis Policy Institute, Diabetes Leadership Council, and Diabetes Patient Advocacy Coalition.
The federal government has indicated that they will pursue a new rule regarding copay assistance. CCPA is actively involved and will continue to update you on these efforts.
