PPTA Urges CMS for Appropriate Hospital Outpatient Reimbursement for Plasma Protein Therapies
Date:8/18/2011

s, Biotechnology Industry Association (BIO), and the Alliance of Dedicated Cancer Centers.  The stakeholders also urged the APC Advisory Panel to recommend that CMS reallocate more money than the proposed $215 million in pharmacy overhead costs from packaged drugs to separately payable drugs by redistributing the same percentage of costs from the coded and uncoded packaged drug pools.  PPTA was deeply disappointed that the Panel failed to make of the stakeholders' proposed recommendations to the agency at the conclusion of the meeting.

PPTA appreciates the opportunity to testify with stakeholders at the APC Advisory Panel meeting and make recommendations to CMS that will help ensure access to plasma protein therapies for rare disease patients.
