The PAN Foundation signs coalition letter from ACCC to U.S. Department of Health and Human Services

As part of the Department’s implementation of President Biden’s Executive Order on Strengthening Medicaid and the Affordable Care Act, we urge you to use your authority to ban the practice of copay accumulator adjustment programs and require health insurance issuers and PBMs to count all cost-sharing payments made by or on behalf of a patient toward that patient’s annual deductible and out-of-pocket maximum.

We urge you to take action to ensure vulnerable patients who struggle to afford their essential specialty medications will be able to meet the high copays and co-insurance, get their prescriptions at the pharmacy counter, and maintain their health.
