Sick Cells Joins ASH and SCDAA Sign-On Letter During COVID Crisis

Home / Policy & Legislation / Sick Cells Joins ASH and SCDAA Sign-On Letter During COVID Crisis

The American Society of Hematology (ASH) and the Sickle Cell Disease Association of America, Inc. (SCDAA) led a sign-on letter to Congressional leaders, including Speaker Pelosi, Leader McConnell, Leader McCarthy, and Leader Schumer, to encourage the leaders to include an amendment to the COVID-19 stimulus bill to improve care for individuals with SCD. This request was for the stimulus bill to authorize the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to quickly develop a program for Medicare/Medicaid dual eligible and Medicaid beneficiaries to improve access to comprehensive outpatient care for individuals with SCD.
