SEND A MESSAGE: HELP SAVE CHILDREN'S LIVES

More than 100,000 Pennsylvanian children suffer from food or insect allergies, and over 1,000 of these children have an allergy so severe that exposure could be fatal. Although many insurance companies do cover epinephrine pen injections, many low-cost short-term plans do not. It is unacceptable that, due to cost, any child be denied access to this life-saving intervention. 

Rep. Hanbidge and Rep. Howard are introducing legislation to require any state-regulated health insurance company to cover the cost of doctor-prescribed, medically necessary epinephrine pens for children under age 18. You can help get this bill signed into law by contacting your state lawmakers and the legislative leaders who control the voting schedule.

 


Your message will be sent to:
Speaker of the House Bryan Cutler; Speaker of the House Michael Turzai; Representative Kathy Rapp; Representative Tina Pickett; Your Representative.

Subject line:
Require insurance companies to cover live-saving epinephrine pens for children!
