Part B Access for Seniors and Physicians (ASP) Coalition

Home / Policy & Legislation / Part B Access for Seniors and Physicians (ASP) Coalition

WHAT THEY DO:  The ASP Coalition represents a broad cross-section of US health care providers and patient advocacy organizations. These entities are committed to advancing life-saving innovation in the US.

HOW WE’VE HELPED AND WHY: Over the course of the year, Sick Cells has signed onto three letters in regards to the Centers of Medicaid and Medicare Services’ (CMS) proposed rules of Part B coverage for drugs and their pricing index. Sick Cells is active with this coalition because nearly 13 percent of the sickle cell population use Medicare as part of their benefits. Sick Cells has also recruited multiple other sickle cell disease organizations, including the SCDAA, to participate with this coalition.
