Two minute ask, How about CGM Coverage?

The House Energy and Commerce Committee is currently working on the bipartisan 21st Century Cures initiative. Help members of the Committee understand that CGM 21 is century technology that needs 21 century coverage. Now is the time, as Chair Rep Fred Upton says: “I am hopeful we’ll have an agreement by the end of the month.”

News on the initiative:
Chairman Fred Upton (R-MI) and Rep. Diana DeGette (D-CO) this week traveled to Southwest Michigan to talk about their nonpartisan 21st Century Cures initiative in Upton’s home district. The two launched 21st Century Cures last spring and have spent the past year gathering ideas from patients and experts across the country for how to improve the complete health care innovation infrastructure in the United States. 
“There is great excitement and anticipation building over the next phase of 21st Century Cures. Our teams have spent countless hours negotiating over the last few months on policy language and they continue to work by the hour in this landmark effort to provide folks more cures and treatments,” said Upton. “I am hopeful that we’ll have an agreement by the end of the month and the legislative phase can swiftly progress. This is an exciting time.”
