PlasmaProteins It’s important to understand that #plasma used to manufacture #plasmaprotein therapies is intrinsically different from blood components used for transfusion. Differences include the way that plasma is collected & the complexities of the production process. bit.ly/2Qo4bsI

PPTA is concerned that the U.S. Senate is considering legislation that would move control over essential health benefits to all 50 states

The U.S. Senate is currently preparing to vote on legislation, the Graham-Cassidy Bill, that will repeal parts of the Affordable Care Act and move control of health care to the states, along with fixed funding from the federal government.

This “state block grant” proposal would allow states to seek waivers to protections afforded by the ACA such as preventing insurers from charging more to patients with pre-existing conditions and prohibiting lifetime or annual caps. States could limit access to needed therapies and medicines as funding to Medicaid is reduced by this legislation. PPTA continues to engage with congressional leaders to protect access to plasma protein therapies in whatever legislation moves forward.
