Cosponsor the Sickle Cell Disease Comprehensive Care Act
ASH has been working with congressional sickle cell disease (SCD) champions and other provider and patient groups to advance bipartisan legislation to improve care for individuals with SCD. With a limited number of legislative days remaining before the end of the 117th Congress, we need your help to show congressional leaders there is strong support for the Sickle Cell Disease Comprehensive Care Act (H.R. 6216 / S. 3389) and for the legislation to be scheduled for a vote in the House and Senate.
This bipartisan legislation, which is supported by ASH and a number of other provider and patient groups, authorizes the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to create a demonstration program to improve preventive and primary outpatient care for individuals living with SCD who are enrolled in Medicaid.
Please take action to send a message to your Senators and Representative urging them to continue to support individuals with SCD and their families by cosponsoring Sickle Cell Disease Comprehensive Care Act.
Thank you for your help in making sure Congress hears from hematologists about the needs of SCD patients.
