CMS approves CAR-T therapy payment, but with significant strings attached. For more details see:

This is a positive first step, but only the first step. We will be interviewing experts on funding over the next few weeks


I am proud of the small role I played in this by going to CMS and lobbying on behalf of future CAR-T patients.

Stay strong.

We are all in this together.

Thanks Doc. You’re the man!

Not sure I understand United Healthcare’s role in this process - did they “sabotage” the initial scheme where reimbursement was based on success?

Very complicated process, I suspect you’ve spent countless hours dealing with it.

Thanks again.
