Urging Access to FDA-Approved Alzheimer’s Treatment

Great progress has been made to advance Alzheimer’s and dementia research, providing hope to families in the midst of a terrible disease. And now that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved Alzheimer’s treatments to slow its progression at an early stage, it’s lifted that hope higher. 

However, a restrictive Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) policy that only applies to those living with Alzheimer’s disease is blocking access to these FDA-approved treatments. Medicare has always covered FDA-approved treatments for those living with a disease. CMS must reverse its unprecedented decision that denies Medicare coverage of current and future treatments for Alzheimer’s.
