CMS has released its National Coverage Determination draft memo that proposes Medicare coverage of hepatitis C testing for Medicare beneficiaries at high risk and one time testing of everyone born between 1945 and 1965. The memo was posted today and there is a public comment period through April 3, 2014. NVHR will be pulling together a call soon to discuss public comment strategies and to prepare for implementation/education. Another great victory for us!

Attached a press release from WHO, from last week, which raises liver cancer up to the 2nd leading cause of cancer death worldwide (after lung cancer). It was previously 3rd. This is very compelling evidence to use as we strive to include liver cancer more in our messaging and talks
with our federal/national partners.
