Deadline TOMORROW COB: Sign on Letter: Support Seniors’ Access to Breakthrough Medical Technologies

We invite you to join us in sending a letter to CMS in support of a proposal that will provide seniors greater access to breakthrough medical devices and diagnostics. CMS included this proposal in the  FY2020 Inpatient Prospective Payment System (IPPS) proposed
rule.  The proposal would establish a streamlined approval process for medical devices applying for Medicare’s new technology add-on payments (NTAP) for inpatient hospital care after they have been approved or cleared by FDA as breakthrough technologies. Specifically,
the rule would deem the breakthrough technology as meeting two of NTAP’s criteria for approval— considered new and not substantially similar to an existing technology. The breakthrough technology must, however, meet NTAP’s third criterion that its costs would
not be covered by Medicare payments for inpatient hospital care, and, as a result, would not be available to Medicare patients. To be added to the letter please fill out this

FORM.
