Building on the momentum from two TV segments earlier this week, local media is continuing to express an interest in our legislation to cap out of pocket costs. NPR's story is being aired this morning on the radio but you can also find it online.
The most recent story mentions that the bill cleared a key hurdle on its way to passage: it was voted out of the Health & Long Term Care Committee yesterday. Unfortunately, we learned late this week that the bill may have a cost to the state -because of this, the bill moves to the Ways & Means Committee. We are trying to learn more about these unexpected costs as we encourage the legislature to move this bill forward.
