Dear Administrator Verma,
I am writing to ask for your consideration as the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services explores avenues to protect vulnerable patient populations during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Plasma Protein Therapeutics Association (PPTA) is the standard setting and global advocacy organization that represents plasma donation centers and manufacturers of plasma protein therapies. Our membership accounts for approximately 80% of plasma therapies in the United States. These therapies treat individuals with rare, chronic, and life-threatening conditions, such as immune deficiencies, certain neurological diseases, alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency, and bleeding disorders.
