Have you experienced step therapy and has it delayed you from accessing a necessary treatment? If so, then the AAD wants to hear from you.

The AAD state policy team is active all year long in advocating for states to enact step therapy laws. As of 2016, the following 10 states have step therapy laws enacted: California, Connecticut, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Missouri, Mississippi, Washington, and West Virginia.

Each legislative session several states consider step therapy legislation and the state policy team needs your help to ensure the states adopt these bills. By writing about your own personal experience with step therapy in the form below and sending it to the AAD, it will help us advocate for your respective state to enact step therapy legislation.
