Make All Copays Count


Share Your Support With Your State Legislators!

Copay assistance was created to help vulnerable patient families afford medicines prescribed by their doctors.

21 states and Puerto Rico already protect patients by ensuring copay assistance counts toward patient out-of-pocket costs.

It is time for Wisconsin to also protect patients!

Dear State Senator / Assembly Representative,

I am writing today to ask you to support upcoming legislation aimed at stopping copay accumulator policies that are harming Wisconsin patients who receive copay assistance.

Copay assistance is offered by drug companies and non-profit organizations.  Insured patients must first apply and be approved for copay assistance.  Uninsured patients cannot access copay assistance.  The problem is that over the past few years, Insurance Companies have started implementing copay accumulator policies and now, nearly 80 percent of health plans in Wisconsin prevent copay assistance from counting toward the patient’s insurance deductible.  Copay assistance was meant to assist patients, and now insurers have found a way to take that money from patients by creating these copay accumulator policies.

The result? Many patients are now discovering upon picking up their medication that they owe far more – sometimes hundreds or even thousands of dollars – than they would have if their copay assistance had been applied towards their deductible as had always been the case in the past.  Not all of them can afford to pay thousands of dollars out of pocket, leading to difficult choices.

Please support efforts to eliminate these unfair copay accumulator policies and stop the harm they are causing patients in our state.
