Just a brief (but significant!) update to the previous article regarding the drug coverage legislation making it’s way through Congress. Having already been passed by the House of Representatives recently, today the bill was passed by the Senate.
Call me bias, but this bill is an absolute no-brainer and I applaud both bodies of government for getting this right. I’m not sure if there are any other legislative hurdles for this law at this point, but I suspect it will need to be signed off by the president.
This is a good reminder to myself that as a kidney health advocate and general person who’s lived his whole life in this country, it might serve me well to brush up on the American legislative process. It couldn’t hurt.
