Cosponsor H.R. 2905, the Medicare IVIG Access Enhancement Act

We are writing to urge you to cosponsor our bipartisan legislation, H.R. 2905, the Medicare IVIG Access Enhancement Act. The bill would provide much-needed assistance to Medicare patients suffering from two rare diseases, Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating
Polyneuropathy (CIDP) and Multifocal Motor Neuropathy (MMN). These debilitating conditions are the result of a patient’s own immune system attacking their motor nerves, leading to compromised mobility and reduced quality of life. Patients are frequently treated
