Please join Innovatix and the National Home Infusion Association (NHIA) in advocating that Medicare provide a comprehensive home infusion benefit (as proposed in the Medicare Home Infusion Site of Care Act).
The current Medicare structure fully covers infusion therapy in hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, hospital outpatient departments, and physician offices, but not in the most cost-effective, convenient and often most clinically appropriate setting- the patient’s home.
The Medicare Home Infusion Site of Care Act would allow beneficiaries to continue to have access to the currently covered infusion drugs under Medicare Part B and D, but also provide a payment under Medicare Part B to fill the existing gaps in infusion-related services, equipment, and supplies that are required to safely administer the therapy.
With national elections a few weeks away, we have a very limited opportunity to get the Medicare Home Infusion Site of Care Act across the finish line. The time is now, and we need your help!
This one-hour event includes a 30-minute preparatory webinar, followed by a 30-minute opportunity for members to take action.
Innovatix and NHIA will provide members with all contact information for Congressional staff, talking points, and follow-up materials. All you have to do is lend your voice and an hour of your time!
If you are unable to participate on September 12, you can still register to help advocate on this important issue.
