The NH step therapy bill, which has been amended, is still a step in the right direction for those suffering with pain and dealing with frustrations from access to prescribed medications. The bill, SB171, will now require health benefit plans providing prescription drug benefits to provide an exception process which shall not take more that 24 hours for coverage for a medically necessary drug prescribed for the treatment of pain.

There is a public hearing scheduled for this Thursday, April 28 at 10:30am in the LOB Rm#302. The bill is being heard by the House Commerce and Consumers Affairs Committee. Here is the contact information for the Chairs – any personal phone calls that can be made before Thursday will surely make a difference.

IF YOU CAN HELP US, NO MATTER WHERE YOU ARE FROM, CALL THE NUMBER BELOW, ASK CAROL the Committee Secretary to ask all members of CCAC to SUPPORT SB171!!!

****We need all of you to call (603) – 271-3369 and speak with the committee secretary and ask that a message be passed on to Representative John Hunt – Chairman and Representative Jennifer Coffey – Vice Chair. Pain survivors should leave their name and hometown, reiterate how important it is to support SB171, and ask that they vote in favor ****

THANK YOU!!!
