CHLPI’s Litigation Director Quoted in Article on HCV Medication Access

A July 2, 2016 article from Judith Graham looks at the recent wave of state Medicaid programs to increase access to Hepatitis C medications in the light of potential litigation from the Center for Health Law and Policy Innovation, its partners, and other organizations.

“Help with the high cost of hepatitis C drugs,” which ran in both USA Today and Kaiser Health News, looks at recent changes in access in Florida, New York, Delaware, Washington, and most recently, Massachusetts.
