Urge Congress to find a balanced approach to deficit reduction that does not involve further cuts to biomedical research
ASH is the leader in representing the interests of scientists and clinicians working in the field of hematology on Capitol Hill and within federal agencies concerned with the study and treatment of blood-related diseases.
In July, the Senate Appropriations Committee approved a draft spending bill that would provide nearly $31 billion for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in fiscal year (FY) 2014, an amount that would replace funding lost due to sequestration and provide a small increase over the FY 2012 NIH budget.
On February 6, 2014 the leadership of the House Ways and Means and Energy and Commerce Committees and the Senate Finance Committee released a bi-partisan and bicameral bill to repeal the Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) formula that has driven annual reductions in Medicare payment for physician services. Your advocacy is needed to ensure that the legislation can be considered by the full House of Representatives and Senate before the short-term physician fee update expires on April 1, 2014.
Legislation has been introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate that would ensure that patients enrolled in certain federally regulated health plans have access and insurance coverage for all anti-cancer regimens.
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) yesterday announced that its resubmission policy has changed. Effectively immediately, researchers whose grant applications are unsuccessful may submit the same idea as a new and unassociated application for the next appropriate due date.
Following its April 8 meeting in Washington, DC, the ASH Committee on Government Affairs visited nearly 40 congressional offices on April 9 to explain to Members of Congress and their staff the impact that cuts in funding to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has on research to find cures and treatments for patients with serious hematologic diseases and the need to continue to support and invest in federal biomedical research funding.
The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Sport Science Institute and ASH have coauthored an article on the health, safety, and well-being of student-athletes with sickle cell trait.
On March 31, the U.S. Senate passed a bill that would avert the more than 20 percent cut to Medicare physician payments mandated by the Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) formula on April 1, 2014.
