Dear [Decision Maker],
As a supporter of the International Myeloma Foundation, I ask you to support H.R. 913, The Clinical TREATMENT Act, legislation that would improve access to clinical trials. Currently, many Medicaid patients who qualify for a clinical trial based on their health may not be able to enroll depending on what state they live in and this legislation fixes this discrepancy. H.R. 913 aims to improve access to clinical trials for Medicaid enrollees by requiring states to provide coverage of routine patient costs in connection with participation in qualifying clinical trials. Many state Medicaid programs, as well as private and commercial payers already require this coverage and this legislation will expand trials to a group of people who are often underrepresented in trials.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP][Your Email]
