On March 26, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) released its updated proposed decision on Medicare coverage for a less-invasive heart valve disease treatment called transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR).
Unfortunately, the update continues to base patient access on hospitals’ procedural volume ahead of equal access and quality care for patients. The extensive data from seven years of TAVR procedures shows that there is no longer a relationship between volume and health outcomes.
This webcast will walk you through the proposed decision and show you how to submit comments to CMS and ensure that the amended TAVR coverage decision will be of most benefit to all patients.
