NPLB helps patient advocates, innovators, and investors be heard in Washington, DC.
NPLB's December letter mobilized hundreds of supporters to urge action on the "Build Back Better" (BBB) legislation so that it improves patient Rx affordability and ensures continued innovation. It requests policymakers lower the proposed Part D catastrophic cap to $1200 and eliminate its deductible altogether. The letter also recommends that BBB not deprioritize small-molecule investment in favor of costlier large-molecule biologics.
