PLEASE read this article and consider contacting your federal legistlator, even if you are healthy! 

This important item appeared in today's National Fibromyalgia and Chronic Pain Awareness newsletter. It includes a template letter to send to your representatives if you are so moved:

Specialty Tier Call to Action

This has already happened to me. One of my medications went from a $30 copay to $450. Four months of negotiation with the insurance company got me nowhere. I shudder to think of those whose very lives rely on a medication that may become priced in the thousands of dollars or more, forcing them to choose between buying their med or paying their mortgage/rent. The really ironic thing is that many of them are too "rich" to qualify for extra help, which leaves them stuck and in ever-increasing debt. I am a "rich" person who had over a third of my total household income, including my husband's full-time job, go to medical expenses.
