Governor signs SB 6087 into law and HCFA-WA is celebrating!

The bill passed the Legislature with strong bi-partisan support. Now that it is law, Washington's nearly 800,000 Diabetes patients will soon see relief from sky-rocketing insulin prices. Please join us in thanking Gov. Inslee for signing this important legislation into law!

Our agenda is aggressive, and we ask for your urgent support as​ we navigate through the COVID-19 crisis to ensure everyone has access to care.

Your contribution, either one-time or a recurring monthly donation, ​will allow us to do so much more.

Thank you for your support!
