Summary: A safety net is required for situations in which enrollees are unable to obtain critical or life-sustaining medications, which can arise when either the drug is not on formulary and/or is being used off-label and the appeals process has been exhausted, or when patients cannot afford the co-payments for the numerous medications they need.
