Sen. Carolyn Allen Calls for Patient Rights and Treatment Option Awareness
Date:5/5/2009

ctor of Neuropathy Association Certified Clinic at Banner Good Samaritan Medical Center and clinical assistant professor at the University of Arizona, said that the idea for the brochure came from the types of calls to the Neuropathy Action Foundation from patients who wonder why they have to take a series of other drugs before they can take the one originally prescribed to them, to those who for whatever reason have been denied a medication or treatment and want to know what their rights are.

"Patients already have a number of rights under existing law," he said. "Unfortunately, many Arizonans are unaware of these rights and do not exercise them."

Kerri Morey, who has multiple sclerosis, said the booklet would have made her life "much easier" had she had access to it when she was first diagnosed. "I encourage all chronically ill patients to keep their records," she said. "Everyone is worth it, and you are your own best advocate."

Patients interested in a brochure can go to www.NeuropathyAction.org or call (877) 512-7262 to request a free copy.
