Craig William Taylor, senior engineer and group leader for Genentech, Inc., is a dedicated member of his community. Craig William Taylor supports several community and charitable organizations, including the Arthritis Foundation.

Dedicated to supporting individuals living with arthritis, the Arthritis Foundation promotes research, spreads knowledge to the public, and advocates for individuals and families. Recently, the organization announced its support of new bipartisan legislation that ensures individuals affected by arthritis will have access to new, effective treatments. This legislation counteracts an increasing trend in the health insurance market that is moving important arthritis medications to specialty tiers, making them less affordable for patients.

Currently, cost-sharing responsibility requires that patients pay between 25 and 50 percent of their medication costs. The Patients’ Access to Treatments Act (PATA) of 2015, if passed, will limit the cost-sharing requirements for specialty tier medications, giving patients lower out-of-pocket expenses for important and innovative arthritis medications. Along with 32 other Coalition for Accessible Treatments members, the Arthritis Foundation encourages patients and physicians to support this act and ask lawmakers to co-sponsor.
