Take Action for prescription drug affordability in colorado
Drug prices affect all consumers and taxpayers whether they take medications or not, and no matter what type of coverage they have. As a result of skyrocketing drug prices, people we know are making difficult choices, such as not filling a prescription, splitting doses in half or relying on expired medications to treat their conditions. Others may be cutting back on expenses, including groceries, borrowing money from friends or family, or forgoing other bills to pay for their prescriptions.
Drugs don’t work if people can’t afford them, and no Coloradan should have to choose between paying for basic necessities and taking the medications that will improve their health.
Join us in the fight against skyrocketing prescription drug prices!
Too many Coloradans struggle to afford the prescription drugs they need for their health. Nearly 1 in 3 Coloradans have skipped filling a prescription, skipped doses, or cut pills because of costs.
Colorado needs additional funding for Medicaid to respond to the COVID-19 public health crisis and meet the health needs of families and children as our economy suffers.
Take action and tell your state legislators to pass the Fair Tax Act to close tax loopholes for the wealthiest and avoid crippling cuts to basic services like education and health care.
Tell your legislators to create the Health Insurance Affordability Act! Help the 250,000 Coloradans buying insurance for themselves/their families or the thousands who have attempted to buy but found themselves priced out and locked out.
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.
