Dr. Doug Roberts, Arthritis Foundation, is meeting with Bethany to talk about arthritis and prescriptions. Roberts will be speaking about sponsored legislation, AB 374, which will not only help patient outcomes but help reduce administrative burdens on doctors' offices. The Bill is still sitting on Governor Brown's desk to sign. The bill will essentially get rid of red tape some patients have to go through. It creates a process for patients to request an override of a health plan or health insurer's step therapy requirement.
