Legislation Update   May 4, 2019

The Board of Directors of NYSNS has signed on with a number of other medical societies around the State of New York supporting  1) Assembly Bill 2371/Senate Bill 2994 which would clarify that the only permissible exception from New York’s vaccination requirements is for patient medical conditions that would place patients who are immunized at risk for adverse outcome; and 2)  Assembly Bill 3038/Senate Bill 2847 which would significantly reduce the exorbitant pre-authorization barriers experienced by patients and their physicians that get in the way of timely treatment and medication and would help to protect consumers’ access to their prescription drugs.
