The Patient’s Right to be Stable

The #KeepMyRx campaign contends that if a patient’s condition is stabilized on their current therapy then they have a right to stay on the medicine their doctor has prescribed.  This right should persist from plan year to plan year, and continue even if the health plan drops the medicine from its formulary. Only with the patient’s and doctor’s consent should a health plan or a pharmacy be able to switch a patient to a different therapy.
