We are working with several groups toward helping to support the people reaching out to us.
We were very instrumental in passing the New York State Ostomy Supplies Bill, a legislation which mandates that all health insurers in the state provide coverage of ostomy supplies.
We are currently working hard again towards getting the NY State Restroom Access Act passed. Also known as “The Ally’s Law”, this is a bill that will allow people with qualifiable medical conditions, like IBD, access to employee restrooms in the workplace. It’s already a law in 16 states, unfortunately, it failed last year, but we’re already working for this year, and hopefully it’ll pass.
