2019 AARP Rx Affordability Campaign
Maryland is poised to
become one of the first states to create a Prescription Drug Affordability
Board! In the final hours of the 2019 Session, the Maryland General Assembly voted in favor of an
amended version of House Bill 768. Now we need your help to make sure Governor Hogan signs this groundbreaking legislation.
The pharmaceutical lobby is hard at work behind the scenes to kill this legislation. It's time to make sure our voices are heard. Please use this form to contact Governor Hogan TODAY and urge him to support and sign HB768.
Maryland needs a watchdog to protect our state from exorbitant prescription drug costs. We still need the governor's support to ensure that Maryland gets a Prescription Drug Affordability Board.
Use this email advocacy tool to urge Governor Hogan to support HB768. Feel free to edit our language to make it your own, and if you have a personal story about high cost prescription drugs, please include it!
Many Marylanders 50+ are often unable to afford the best available medications for their needs, and can be forced to choose between their treatment and other necessities. Overall drug prices increased 9 percent in 2016 while inflation increased just over 2 percent.
Its time to stand up to Rx greed. Please contact Governor HoganTODAY.
