Alliance for Aging Research Urges Patients to Contact CMS as It Reconsiders TAVR Coverage
Published July 17, 2018
In this video, Alliance for Aging Research President and CEO Susan Peschin, MHS, talks about the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ decision to reconsider its coverage of a minimally-invasive heart valve disease treatment called transcatheter aortic valve replacement, or TAVR. The details of how CMS decides to cover and reimburse hospitals for TAVR are very important because they will impact how many hospitals and heart centers around the country will be able to offer the procedure. The Alliance for Aging Research is asking you to weigh in with your personal story about heart valve disease or TAVR by submitting comments to CMS.
The deadline to submit comments on this coverage policy was July 27, 2018.
