Patient-Doctor Choice Letter Writing Campaign

Doctor and patient discussing her medical treatment

Patient-doctor choice matters: Let your provincial government know

New medications to treat Crohn’s and colitis are becoming more accessible. However, some provincial governments are considering switching people on certain biologics to its biosimilar for non-medical reasons, including cost. We think treatment decisions should be made between you and your doctor - not by government. Policy change made at the expense of your health is not okay.

Do you agree? 

TAKE PART IN OUR LETTER-WRITING CAMPAIGN TO LET YOUR PROVINCIAL GOVERNMENT KNOW HOW YOU FEEL!

All you have to do is enter your name, email, and postal code - we'll take care of the rest.  

Your participation in this campaign is crucial! The more noise our community makes, the more likely provincial governments will reconsider implementing a non-medical switch.
