Help Impact Insurance Coverage for Lupus Treatment

Take a New York minute and make your voices heard on an important health care issue that impacts our ability to receive the most suitable treatments. Let your NYS Legislators know that Step Therapy/First Fail protocol delays patient access to medications, creates more obstacles for patients and physicians to overcome, denies continuity of care, and FAILS all of us. That's why one of our co-members in the Lupus Agencies of NYS, the Lupus Foundation of Mid and Northern New York, Inc., created a petition to The New York State Assembly and The New York State Senate.

Watch Assemblyman Matt Titone speaking about the issue on NY’s only statewide political program on Capital Tonight YNN.  He talks about lupus specifically in arguing that the Fail First insurance policy is unfair to patients and credits our co-member of the Lupus Agencies of NY, Kathleen Arntsen for bringing the issue to his attention. Assemblyman Titone is now sponsoring a bill to end the practice
