After a big win during the legislative session, patient groups are now calling on Governor Cuomo to sign the step therapy bill. The measure gives doctors more options to work around what's known as "fail first" insurance rules, where a patient must first be given a less expensive option before moving on to the doctor's recommendation. It passed both houses unanimously. Wednesday, advocates rallied at the capitol to call for the governor to act. Joining us to talk more about the issue are Jennifer Muthig, the New York State Advocacy Director for the Multiple Sclerosis Society, Karen Waldron, chair of the Board of Trustees for the upstate chapter, and Dr. Mark Price, the Vice President of the State Academy of Family Physicians.
