Too many Coloradans struggle to afford the prescription drugs they need for their health.
- Prescription drugs play an essential role in preventing, managing, and curing diseases – but drugs don’t work if people can’t afford them. Coloradans deserve to get the medicines they need at a reasonable cost.
- Coloradans pay much higher costs for prescription drugs than consumers in other countries, making them unaffordable for many people. We can save Coloradans as much as 75% on the current costs of unaffordable drugs by bringing them more in line with the costs in other countries.
- Now is the time for action to reduce Rx costs in Colorado. Sign on today in support of this legislation and tell your legislator to support an independent Prescription Drug Affordability Board that can reign in sky-high prescription drug costs!
Join us as we advance state level policies to make prescription drugs more affordable for Coloradans!
Here’s what you can do:
It’s time for us to create the Colorado Affordable Health Care Option (a.k.a. the Colorado Option) and leverage the state infrastructure to bring more affordable coverage to consumers and hold hospitals and insurers more accountable to Coloradans. Contact your legislators, volunteer, share your story,…
Volunteer to phone bank with CCHI to pass the Colorado Affordable Health Care Option (aka public/state option)! No experience is necessary—we will train you and provide you with all the information needed.
This spring, Colorado legislators created new and robust protections to stop surprise out-of-network medical bills and their egregious charges. Unfortunately, the new protections, which go into effect January 1, 2020, cannot protect ALL Coloradans. The new protections cannot apply to Coloradans who are insured through federally regulated health insurance plans. Only Congressional action can ensure all Coloradans share the same protections from surprise medical bills and their disastrous consequences.
