What is Keep My Rx?

The #KeepMyRx campaign seeks to raise public awareness about the benefits of medical stability and the impact on patient health of being forced by their health plans to switch medicines. The #KeepMyRx campaign promotes legislation and policies that protect patient access to the medicines their physicians prescribe. The #KeepMyRx policy priorities include insurance reform that limits utilization management practices such as non-medical switching.
