TELL GOVERNOR CUOMO TO SIGN THE CHP BILL!
The bill mandating coverage for outpatient clotting factor under the state’s Child Health Plus program, which passed in the New York State Legislature in June with broad bipartisan support, is now on Governor Cuomo’s desk. We need your help to get it signed into law. PLEASE take a few minutes right now to write to Governor Cuomo and ask him to sign the bill.
Here is suggested language:
Dear Governor Cuomo,
As a member of a family affected by a bleeding disorder, I encourage you to sign A0962a into law. This bill passed both houses of the Legislature unanimously with broad support. Passing this bill into law will enable children with bleeding disorders in New York State who are on Child Health Plus to have the same access to their critically needed medication as children who are on Medicaid and private insurance. This law simply addresses a specific gap in CHP coverage.
Thank you for helping our families!
