MEDIA ADVISORY: CONSUMER GROUP TO RELEASE LEGISLATIVE SCORECARD
OKLAHOMA CITY – Monty Collings will speak about his daughter’s struggle with cancer and his drive to give her a legislative legacy during the Oklahoma Foundation for Consumer & Patient Rights’ release of its second legislative scorecard.
Steffanie Collings died in March from a brain tumor. She was 18.
The family’s ordeal led to Steffanie’s Law, which would have required insurance companies to pay for routine health care associated with participation in clinical trials. The Collings were hit with more than $400,000 in medical bills after their insurance company refused to pay their daughter’s claims.
The bill passed the Senate but stalled in the House.
Steffanie’s Law is one of 28 bills the Oklahoma Foundation for Consumer & Patient Rights has highlighted because of their importance to Oklahomans’ personal, financial and medical safety.
What: 2008 Legislative Scorecard release news conference
When: Sept. 30 at 11 a.m.
Where: Governor’s Large Conference Room, Oklahoma State Capitol
Food and refreshments will be provided.
