Act today to help protect access to sight-saving glaucoma care for Medicare beneficiaries!
Recently, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) allowed a decision to move forward on how micro-invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS) will be covered for individuals who have glaucoma. Prevent Blindness is concerned that this recent decision will seriously compromise sight-saving glaucoma care for patients. You can act today to help protect access to sight-saving glaucoma care for Medicare beneficiaries!
Glaucoma is a very serious, irreversible sight-threatening disease that affects more than 3 million Americans. For patients who live with glaucoma, access to innovative procedures such as MIGS can mean the difference between living a life with healthy vision or needless vision loss.
Prevent Blindness has put together a letter template with instructions for patients to use when reaching out to CMS. We encourage you to use the letter template to contact CMS and share your story with glaucoma to help protect access to sight-saving care for millions of Medicare beneficiaries.
