Just the FACTs, 2019 Volume 4

Posted in :: 2019 Volume 4 :: Wednesday, April 17th, 2019

Many of you in North America are tired of winter and cold, and we have some hot topics in this newsletter to get your circulation going. One topic is FACT’s contribution of comments to the CMS national coverage determination for CAR T-cell therapies. We hope the coverage will be clarified in a manner that covers the costs to the institution beyond the purchase of the product. Also, I invite all of you to consider volunteering for the Standards Committee for the upcoming revision cycle. This is very much a working committee, but there is no better way to know what’s coming and contribute to the community than through the making of clinically important standards!

As always, there are many educational events throughout the year. Review FACT’s educational calendar and register for an event today.

I look forward to seeing many of you at the ISCT Annual Meeting in Melbourne!
