The Alliance submitted a letter to Congress supporting the Lymphedema Treatment Act (S. 498, H.R. 930). The Alliance recommended that Congress grant CMS the statutory authority to cover compression bandages and garments for lymphedema under the Medicare benefit, noting that this change could have a substantial impact via improved outcomes and quality of life, reduced costs for beneficiaries and the health care system, and decreased federal spending.
