TOMORROW, Wednesday, April 1: Rx in Reach will Launch to Limit Specialty Tier OOP Costs!

We will launch Rx in Reach, our campaign dedicated to limiting what insurers can charge Georgia patients out-of-pocket for vital medications. Rx in Reach will advocate for legislation at the state level using traditional lobbying and communications, as well as online/social media advocacy.

We need your help to begin promoting the campaign via social media and rallying your networks to do so as well. We will officially announce the launch of Rx in Reach TOMORROW (Wednesday, April 1).
