Society Joins 33 Organizations Urging "Patient-First" Policy Agenda
October 15, 2020
The National MS Society has joined 33 national organizations representing millions of people with pre-existing conditions announcing the release of our top priorities for the next Administration. “The 100 Days Agenda: A Patient-First Blueprint
,” is a first-of-its-kind collaboration that outlines specific steps the President and other elected officials can take immediately after they are sworn into office to protect access to affordable and adequate health coverage for people with pre-existing conditions.
Released 10 years after the Affordable Care Act became law, the policy agenda provides guidance on how policymakers, including the Administration, can leverage each of the three branches of government to protect patients and strengthen our system of care. It also includes steps policymakers can take to address harmful policies that undermine patient protections, including protections for those with pre-existing conditions. Click here
