Stephen Marmaras discusses Fail First policies


Fail First policies, also known as Step Therapy, are insurance policies which require the cheapest drug to be prescribed to a patient first, rather than the medicine originally prescribed by the doctor.

This year, CreakyJoints was invited to be special reporters at the 2017 American College of Rheumatology (ACR) conference, where we had the chance to sit down with the experts to discuss the latest in arthritis care and health care policy. 

In this video, Stephen Marmaras, CreakyJoints Director of Policy and Advocacy, speaks with Tien Sydnor-Campbell about current Fail First policies in the U.S. and how they are affecting patient’s access to treatments.
