Congress is quiet on health policies this week, but the federal health agencies are making noise. Terry and Dr. Bob cover the controversy over CMS’ proposed coverage decision for a new Alzheimer’s treatment. And learn about the FDA’s decision to make hearing aids more accessible.
Plus, Medicare receives scrutiny over not reimbursing at-home tests for seniors. And when it comes to COVID treatments, high demand and low supply present new challenges in the fight for health equity.
And hear from psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis patient advocate Diane Talbert, who previews an upcoming collaboration to create a community space for patients with psoriatic arthritis.
