Act Now to Help Save Health Care Protections for Those With Food Allergies

Kids With Food Allergies ·
On Sept. 13, 2017, Senators Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Bill Cassidy (R-LA) introduced a new bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The ACA includes protections for those with pre-existing conditions. Their goal is to vote on the repeal before Sept. 30, 2017. This bill, commonly called the Graham-Cassidy bill, could cause millions of Americans to lose health insurance. If passed, health insurance could become unaffordable for people with chronic conditions and low incomes.

Re: Act Now to Help Save Health Care Protections for Those With Food Allergies

Kids With Food Allergies ·
Patients were heard! The Graham-Cassidy bill is defeated. Pre-existing conditions, lifetime caps and other protections for patients are protected. Thank you to all of our advocates for sharing your stories and taking action. We hope the next step to improving our health care system puts patients’ needs front and center and that our leadership listens and fixes the items that are still barriers to care.

Re: Letter to the Department of Health and Human Services: People With Allergies Need Access to Epinephrine

Nutfreemama1 ·
Thank you for writing this letter. i do wish that even after this shortage that Auvi-q was covered by insurance. The mechanism of delivery is easier and the verbal instructions are gold in a crisis- especially when others are caring for your child or even self injecting - having verbal instructions in a time of crisis makes a huge difference.

Letter to the Department of Health and Human Services: People With Allergies Need Access to Epinephrine

Kids With Food Allergies ·
For the past few months, many members of our community have had trouble filling prescriptions for epinephrine auto-injectors. Some have been affected by shortages due to manufacturing issues. Others have been given one auto-injector when two have been prescribed, as decided by their insurance company. Families are walking away from pharmacies empty-handed, or driving miles out of their way to fill their prescription
