Build a Better Path to Dementia Care

Comprehensive dementia care has been shown to reduce costs while providing better quality care. Unfortunately, dementia care management programs have not developed within the current Medicare fee-for-service system. The bipartisan Comprehensive Care for Alzheimer's Act (S. 1125 / H.R. 2517) would ask the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (CMMI) to test a different payment structure for dementia care management.


Support Equity in Alzheimer's Clinical Trials

In order to ensure that future treatments and means of prevention are effective in all populations, Alzheimer’s and dementia research must be reflective of the U.S. population. The bipartisan Equity in Neuroscience and Alzheimer’s Clinical Trials (ENACT) Act would increase the participation of underrepresented populations in clinical trials by expanding education and outreach to these populations, encouraging the diversity of clinical trial staff and reducing participation burden.

Fund the Alzheimer's Public Health Infrastructure


Support our Nation's Dementia Caregivers

An estimated 11 million Americans are providing unpaid care to someone living with dementia, and they need our support. While providing this assistance can be rewarding it's also quite challenging for the caregiver to sustain. The bipartisan Alzheimer’s Caregiver Support Act (S. 56/H.R.1474) would provide much needed relief for our nation’s dementia caregivers.


Join the Alzheimer's Congressional Task Force

Since its founding in 1999, the bipartisan Congressional Task Force on Alzheimer’s Disease has worked to advance research and public awareness of Alzheimer’s and all dementia by bringing the disease to the forefront of the congressional agenda. The Task Force has been instrumental in helping advance policies to improve the lives of all those impacted by Alzheimer’s. Join us in encouraging all members to join this important task force.

Advocate for Medicare Coverage

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) issued a draft decision effectively proposing to deny Medicare access to FDA-approved medications for Alzheimer’s disease. Medicare has always covered FDA-approved treatments for those living with other conditions like cancer, heart disease and HIV/AIDS. We need your help to reverse this draft decision.
