Prescriber Prevails Update:

Prescriber prevails is a policy that allows medical providers and patients to have the final say over medication decisions.  This year, the Executive budget proposes to reduce prescriber prevails – cutting patient access to important medications.  Patient groups across New York State are calling on their state representatives to protect prescriber prevails in Medicaid and extend it to all therapeutic classes.  We ask Governor Cuomo, the New York State Senate, and the New York State Assembly to protect prescriber prevails and extend it to all medication classes in Medicaid.
