INJURED ON THE JOB? STATE LAWMAKERS COULD LIMIT YOUR MEDICAL TREATMENTS CONTACT THESE LAWMAKERS TODAY
Senate Bill 936 would create a pre-approved list of drugs for workers’ compensation claims. This means that the insurance company – NOT your doctor – would be controlling your healthcare decisions. We need to stop this harmful bill. Please call these instrumental State Representatives – it will only take a few minutes of your time.
Below are the names, phone numbers, and script for the call:
- REP. ROSEMARY BROWN – MONROE & PIKE COUNTIES (570) 420-8301
- REP. JONATHAN FRITZ – SUSQUEHANNA & WAYNE COUNTIES (570) 253-5533
- REP. JIM MARSHALL – BEAVER & BUTLER COUNTIES (724) 847-1352
- REP. DAVE MILLARD – COLUMBIA COUNTY (570) 759-8734

- REP. TODD STEPHENS – MONTGOMERY COUNTY (215) 368-5165
- REP. JEFF WHEELAND – LYCOMING COUNTY (570) 321-1270
- Hello. My name is _______, and I’m calling to let the Representative know that I’m opposed to Senate Bill 936.
- I’m concerned about how the bill would impact me – and people like me – if I get injured at work.
- By creating a drug formulary, insurance companies can overrule my doctor and deny me the medicine that my doctor prescribed.
- This bill is about putting more money in insurance companies’ pockets, not about what’s best for me if I get hurt at work.
- SB 936 requires utilization review organizations to be certified by some national accreditation agency – likely governed by insurers. This could allow insurers to “stack the deck” and guarantee the outcome of appeals in the workers’ compensation system.
- Under current law, injured workers have given up their right to sue in exchange for a system that provides timely and proper medical care. This is a HUGE hit to the workers’ comp system and the “grand bargain” as a whole.
- SB 936 would hurt me and others who get hurt at work. This bill is detrimental to hard-working constituents.
- Thank you for your time.
