Watch with Us: Congress Hears from Patients about Affordable Drug Pricing

This week, both the House and Senate will tackle the issue of drug pricing- and they’ll be hearing from patients. In a House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee hearing on Wednesday morning at 10am, officials will hear testimony on the drug supply chain, specifically how ‘middle men’ like wholesalers, distributors, and payers impact affordable access to prescription drugs. (Politico)

For the first time, Congress will hear patient voices alongside industry leaders.

David Mitchell, the Founder and President of Patients for Affordable Drugs will present patient stories he has collected, including his own experience with cancer medications, alongside facts and figures on drug pricing at the Wednesday hearing. The Senate also heard from Mitchell on Tuesday, when they reviewed the National Academy of Medicine’s November report on making medicines more affordable. (Politico)

Watch the hearing along with us here! Then say what are you hoping will be the outcome from this meeting in the comments below! DPAC will be following along and posting what impact the hearing could have on people with diabetes in the upcoming days.

 

Replay: Diabetes & Commercial Insurance – Ask An Expert: Dr. Edmund Pezalla, MD, MPH

ejp-photo-nov20131Insurance is complex and diabetes is a complex disease to manage; trying to navigate commercial health plans for the best options can be even more complex with diabetes!

Last year in October, we held a very popular online presentation with Dr. Edmund Pezalla, MD, MPH about key things patients should consider (specifically people with diabetes) when selecting a commercial health plan.

Dr. Pezalla walked us through the different types of  plans (including Medicare), how to determine what type of insurance may be right for your diabetes, what you need to know before you enroll, and what questions you should be asking.

Dr. Pezalla was the Vice President for Pharmaceutical Policy and Strategy in the Office of the Chief Medical Officer at Aetna. He is in the process of writing a book on patient decision making in the insurance enrollment process. We are honored to have him share his expertise.

He is a graduate of Georgetown University College of Arts and Sciences, Georgetown University School of Medicine, and the University of California at Berkeley School of Public Health. He completed his residency in Pediatrics at the Bethesda Naval Hospital and post-doctorate in Health Policy at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.

It’s that time of year to prepare for health insurance plans.

How to Rock Diabetes Advocacy at Town Hall Meetings

Time for Recess! (And That Means Town Halls!)

Now that summer is in full swing, just like for students, Congress has a long recess out of Washington. With this Congressional session wrapping up, representatives have flown out of D.C. and back to their home districts for a time to reset and reconnect to the constituents they represent. This means connecting in town hall meetings with people who care about diabetes advocacy and healthcare policy.

While back home and out of the clamor of the Capitol, representatives seek to hear about what we think about their decisions, and the direction we hope they will go in. So. How do we talk to them? How do we let them know what we think, to express our approval or disapproval?

The answer, town hall meetings, are traditions that stand as one of the most tangible examples of representation and democracy in our country.

Wait, Didn’t Those Happen in Colonial Times?

Yep. Starting before the United States was formed, town hall meetings have been evidence of ordinary citizens at work. Ordinary citizens — not only experienced politicians, wealthy individuals, interest groups, or insurance companies — talking directly to policy-makers about political decisions.

Town hall meetings are anything involving constituent participation. These meetings or events  have been hugely relevant throughout history. From the Lincoln-Douglas Debates of 1858 (changed the course of history!) to town hall meetings discussing healthcare in 2009, town hall meetings and these local events involving citizen-to-representative conversation are vital to keep representatives accountable and democracy alive.

Showing up for Democracy

If you want to influence Congress in these town hall meetings, the first step is knowing where they are and how to access them. Just like everything else in the 21st century, the next town hall meeting for your district can usually be found online. If you can’t find out the next town hall meeting online, call your representative, politely introduce yourself as a constituent, and ask when the next town hall meeting will be held. You can find your representative and phone number here, through DPAC. You can also find out how involved your representative is in diabetes advocacy here.

Town hall meetings can be physical gatherings in a public location, online meetings, televised sessions with opportunities to submit questions, telephone call-ins, Google Hangout, or Twitter gatherings. The formats are endless. There are so many different ways for any and every type of person to be in contact with their representatives, convey their opinions in a way that is heard, and rock diabetes advocacy.

You’re Going to Show Up, GREAT!

Okay, so you’ve checked online or called your Congress rep and written down the town hall meeting in with pen on your calendar. You are excited and maybe a little bit nervous about talking to your representative personally about everything you have learned about diabetes health policy and diabetes advocacy. You want to do things like tell them to co-sponsor bill H.R. 3271 and pay attention to diabetes access.

What next?

Make time before the meeting starts to introduce yourself. Show up early to connect personally to your representative and others associated. Giving a face and personal story to the idea of a “constituent” is huge in reinforcing issues and making the policy-makers think about the lives impacted by each decision made in D.C.

bill-to-lawBring things you care about, want to say, and have been thinking about every time a new healthcare decision pops up on your newsfeed or on Facebook. Write down different points to talk about so that you vocalize everything you want to say, and effectively communicate as a diabetes advocate. Not sure what to talk about or how to help patients affected by diabetes? Check here in the “Act Now” section, and on the DPAC mobile app.

Bring friends who care about you or are affected by similar issues to make town hall meetings more comfortable. Spread out across the front of the room and give everybody important questions to ask. If the town hall meeting is in a different format, coordinate the timing and asking of questions beforehand.

Be persistent and polite in asking your questions and getting answers. Congresspeople are real humans who are often ridiculed, and will be much more open to answering politely-phrased questions. However, persistence is equally as important, and it is your representative’s job to answer your questions and ensure you are satisfied. It’s their job to represent you and your interests in the patient realm.

That’s all there is to it, folks. You have all the tools you need and are ready to rock diabetes advocacy one town hall meeting at a time.

Your First 100 Days: Building Your Personal Advocacy Plan

Building A Personal Advocacy Plan

We have a new Congress and a new Administration. There are many reports speculating about what they will do in their first 100 days.

I am asking myself, what else can I do in the first 100 days for people with diabetes? To be effective, I’m going to need a plan.

DAPC will be hosting a session before The Diabetes UnConference in Las Vegas on Friday, February 10 from 3-5pm at the Westin Las Vegas to help individuals set their advocacy goals for those 100 days. We would love to see you there (This session is open to the public and it’s free!). But if you can’t be there, you can use this outline to build your plan from home.

Health Policy – What Matters Most

The Diabetes UnConference is powerful through the group’s ability to talk passionately and respectfully about sensitive issues. Let’s create a parallel effort online with the same respect and passion. Follow the challenges below to help define your personal advocacy plan.

The goal is not to find the one thing on which we all agree. Rather to inspire each other to act from our individual passions. Together our actions will aggregate to be a more robust chorus of people calling for better diabetes policy.

The Home Edition of Our Game

When I was a kid and home sick from school, I watched game shows. They all closed with a mention of the game’s home edition. I have a home game too, and it is simple. All you will need are passion, a pencil, and paper. I liked the shows where there were a series of little games that progressed through the show. So a series of challenges follows.

I will ask you to write things in these challenges. I hope you will actually take pencil to paper. Writing helps focus the mind. But writing and sharing are not the same things. We all know about cyber security. You can keep what you write to yourself. If you choose to share your thoughts, do so within your comfort zone. As examples, I am sharing what I wrote here.

For those who do want to be part of a first 100 days diabetes policy advocacy communty, please do so on DPAC’s Facebook page or in the comment section of this post.

 

Challenge I: Introduction

Game shows always introduce their contestants. Typically just two or three sentences. So in sixty seconds, scribble down your introduction. Include where you are from and your relationship with diabetes.

Example:

I am Bennet Dunlap from Bryn Athyn PA. My wife and I are proud to have raised four children here. Two of them have lived with type 1 diabetes for more than a decade each.

 

Challenge II: Who’s Good and Why

Quickly, write the name of a group that successfully influences policy. What do they do that makes them good? Maybe there are ideas you can borrow.

  • Are their policy asks specific?
  • Can an individual member measure her actions?
  • How does she show her community that she accountable for action?
  • Are the actions she commits to take a realistic expectation of her time?
  • How can her actions inspire others to take action too?

Example:

The NRA are experts at grassroots advocacy. Members appear motivated to engage and do so regularly. I don’t know how members track their personal activity. It seems that collectively they are excellent at motivating both themselves and peers with social media. Passion drives action and makes time for individuals to act.

 

Challenge III: Health Care and Diabetes

What is one thing you would most like to see be an outcome of the health care debate? Are you concerned that pre-existing conditions will make coverage impossible? Should young adults be able to stay on their parent’s plans, do you worry about closing the Medicare donut hole, or something else?

Please write this one thing down.

Example:

I worry about the repeal of ACA especially access to coverage for young adults like my kids who live with diabetes. I want them to be able to stay on our plan through college and as they start out in life. I worry that repeal may again allow insurers restrict coverage due to T1D being a pre-existing condition. 

 

Challenge IV: What Can I Do

Now, our game gets a little harder. Like Jeopardy, your answers need to be phrased in a specific way. Not as a question but as an “I can” statement.

In DPAC’s January Ask An Expert, Al Jackson encouraged advocates to focus on the Senate as an important advocacy target in the health debate. Let’s take his advice.

Starting with “I can,” write a reply to the following question:

What can I do that would make clear to my Senators the one outcome of repeal and replace that is most important to me?

Example:

I can reach out regularly to my Senators and share the value I place in insurance access for young adults. In the past few days the phone lines have been busy, and voice mail overflowing, so for the first 100 days, I will go old school and snail mail picture postcards to my Senators twice each week. I’ll send to both the DC and in state offices.

 

Challenge V: Refine

You now have the core of your personal plan. Now refine it.

Start by blending in the short introduction you wrote above. It will help your Senators see you as a real person and the where you live part demonstrates you are a constituent.

Next look at the things you identified as exceptional advocacy above under “who is good and why.”

  • Is your ask specific?
  • Once and done isn’t enough. How will you measure the actions you will take over the 100 days?
  • Being accountable to a friend is a powerful motivation to act – To who you will be accountable?
  • How will you inspire others with your work?
  • Be realistic, how will you do fit these actions into your busy life?

Example:

I will send separate cards for pre-existing and young adults on parents plans. I will send each Senator two cards a week. Each will start with a variation of the introduction above. The kids are motivated to engage and I will hold myself accountable to them with text photos of the cards I send each week. I’m confident they will call me out like nobody else if I don’t do it. I’ll challenge them to continue to share their advocacy actions with me. We are a competitive family and I look forward to some one-upmanship. To fit this extra effort into the schedule, I have bulk bought cards with Pennsylvania themes from Amazon and will write batches while relaxing with TV in the evening.

 

Final Challenge: Do it – and SHARE what you’ve done!

Doing is hard. Having a plan makes doing easier. Here is the picture I messaged to my kids to kick off my plan.

We’d love to see what you’ve chosen to do. Help inspire others to act by sharing your thoughts and ideas in the comment section of the page or on DPAC’s Facebook page. What will your first 100 days be like?

Diabetes & Commercial Insurance – Ask An Expert: Dr. Edmund Pezalla, MD, MPH

DPAC District Days: Scheduling The Meeting

Scheduling a meeting with your representative is the perfect way to turn the heat up and meet with our representatives when they are home from Washington, D.C. this summer. Diabetes doesn’t stop working, so we can’t either when it comes to asking Congress for help on diabetes issues. Not only will they be here, but many of them are campaigning, so they are looking for ways to connect with their constituents – perfect for everyone!

As we promised in our DPAC District Days are Coming post (which we encourage you to read if you’re unfamiliar with what DPAC District Days is all about), we will be providing you with helpful worksheets, advice, and information to make it easy to advocate. Let’s start!

Step 1: Download this Worksheet!

DPAC District Days Pre-Meeting Worksheet

 

DPAC District DaysOnce you’ve downloaded it/printed it out, you’ll see what information you want to gather before you even start the process. (And if you’re incredibly ambitious, you’ll want three worksheets: one for each Senator and one for your local House representative.) Much of the information you’ll need is found on the DPAC Scorecard, so be sure to click on that link to open another tab and get the information you’ll need.

When you review the DPAC Scorecard for each representative, you may find that he/she has supported many of the bills by co-sponsoring. Don’t think you have nothing to discuss with them! First, we always like to be thanked (which you can do at the beginning of the meeting), but you can also discuss the Medicare Competitive Bidding Program or the Special Diabetes Funding program. There is ALWAYS something to discuss when it comes to diabetes, right?

Pick a maximum of TWO topics to discuss and mark them on the worksheet to share with the scheduler. (Any more than two and you can actually lessen the importance of the meeting. No one wants a laundry list of bills to co-sponsor.)

Do you want to have others go to the meeting with you? Contact them and get their information, so that you’ll be able to share that with the scheduler as well.

How do I schedule a meeting?

diary-page-1240501-639x506Go to the legislator’s website. Yes, they all have them. Some are more, shall we say, constituent friendly while others are bare bones.

You can find the website by clicking on the Find Officials link on DPAC’s website and entering your zip code. Clicking on the Senator or House representative will show you the official Congressional website for each.

Once at the representative’s website, you may see a “Request a meeting” section/button. This will give you information on how to schedule.

Some Congressional representatives will have an “online scheduling system” to help the scheduler with all of the details. If you call, they may ask you to fill out the online form.

Others may not have an online request, so you will call the local district office nearest to you and speak with someone.

When should I contact the scheduler for a meeting?

Best to schedule 3 to 4 weeks in advance. In 2016, if you want to meet with your representative, the time to start contacting the scheduler would be mid-June for a mid-July meeting. (Also, this does give you and the scheduler some flexibility to get a meeting with the representative over the 6 weeks that they are home.)

If you are planning to attempt a D.C. meeting, please be prepared for the distinct possibility that you will not meet with the representative, even if you have been scheduled. When Congress is in session, there are last minute votes or other issues that could draw the representative from the meeting. (This is why we prefer meeting in the district.)

My representative can’t meet with us!

If you are told that your representative is not available during the times you want to schedule, you may be offered a meeting with a staffer. Take it! There is often someone in the office who specializes in healthcare issues (after all, it’s a big deal!) and that person, if you meet with them, will share the information and help form a decision regarding co-sponsoring bills or taking action on an issue. Your representative places tremendous trust in that staffer, so trust them to meet and listen to you.

I Have An Appointment On The Calendar. Now What?

Logos 150x200Fill out the DPAC District Days Pin Request so we can send you the coveted WE ARE DPAC pins to wear to the meeting (and one to give to the legislator, too!). They look super in a picture to give to the local press. (We’ll share more about that later!)

Our next DPAC District Days post will share more information, handy tips, and how to get ready for the meeting.

In the meantime, share this post with others and let’s get ready to turn up the heat!

Get Ready: DPAC District Days Are Coming!

What are DPAC District Days?

Your Congressional representatives don’t spend all year in Washington, D.C. voting on bills. In fact, they will only spend 110 days there in 2016. One of the most important things that they do is meet with their constituents while in their own districts. These times at home this summer are a great opportunity for DPAC District Days – and we want to make it as easy as possible to be a diabetes policy advocate!

As you know, there are over 6,000 bills and resolutions introduced in Congress every year. Some bills (like the ones impacting diabetes) can get lost in the shuffle. How do they know which bills are important to their constituents? We tell them.

D.C. Work Weeks versus District Work Weeks

It’s not always economically feasible for people to travel to D.C. to speak with a Congressperson when they are in the District of Columbia. When Congress is in session, it’s a D.C. Work Week. When they come home, it’s a… District Work Week.

While you’ll see organizations that bring advocates to Washington as a group and lots of photo opportunities abound, you can be just as effective without traveling. (And you can get great photo opportunities of your own!)

When are DPAC District Days?

questions300x300actFrom July 18 to September 2, 2016, our Congressional representatives will be in their own districts. (Note: this year, the last two weeks of July are the national conventions for each party. Your representative may not be in district for that particular week.) That gives us four weeks to meet with them (or their staff, which is just as or sometimes more important!) or participate in a local Town Hall to speak up about diabetes issues with your Congressperson in attendance.

How You Be A Rockstar Diabetes Policy Advocate?

Keep reading the posts. Keep taking the actions. Keep living your lives, because we will have it covered for you.

  • – We’ll have checklists.
  • – We’ll have downloadable information sheets to bring to the meeting.
  • – And over the next few months, we’ll be walking you step-by-step through DPAC District Days.

We want to make it easy for you. From gathering people impacted with diabetes who may want to go with you to a meeting to the thank you follow-up and media suggestions to get your photo in the local news, DPAC will give you all the tools.

Interested in DPAC District Days?

Great! Here are a few steps to start:

  • – Sign up for timely emails that will walk you step-by-step through a successful meeting with your representatives this summer.

[mailmunch-form id=”289178″]

  • – If you don’t know yet, find out who your representatives are and if they support diabetes bills. You can do this by going to the DPAC Scorecard and going to your state. And if you don’t know which representative is in your district, you can check by zip code.
  • – Interested in scheduling a meeting with your Senators in your state? Get a group together and make an impact! We’ll show you how and help you set it up!

Let’s bring diabetes policy issues close to home when your representatives are home.

There’s no better time than DPAC District Days!

TweetOn Thursday, May 12, 2016 at 8pm EST, we are asking our diabetes community (And those who care about people with diabetes!) to band together and send a message to Congress and others that restricting access to diabetes medications, devices, and supplies harms people.

Diabetes is self-managed and everyone’s management is individualized.  Patients and their healthcare teams should define the best path for living well with diabetes. Government bureaucrats and insurance company cost accountants should not veto doctors’ orders.

These efforts do not always save even money. The Centers of Medicare and Medicaid Services’ (CMS) attempt to save money on diabetes testing supplies has actually done the opposite – money is being wasted on increased hospital stays. Not just losing money, but people with diabetes on Medicare in the US are losing their lives through this program. Send a tweet to help save a life.

To learn more about the CMS Competitive Bidding Program and why it needs to be immediately suspended, click here. We have a campaign called #suspendbidding and we want to get Congress to care.


A single tweet can save a life.

Imagine what 10,000 tweets can do.
