Fiona Ma for State Assembly

Fiona Ma hopes to put a stop to jacked-up medical costs

Some insurers jack up the prices of some vital medications to “specialty tiers”,  a practice that Assemblywoman Fiona Ma hopes to stop.

Ma will today announce legislation that would eliminate the expensive specialty tiers, and also cap monthly co-pays.

Ma will announce the legislation at 3:30 p.m. today in the lobby of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, joined by patients and advocates.
