Supporting the Prohibition of QALYs (Quality-Adjusted Life Years) in Federal Programs (HR 485)

AAHD and the Lakeshore Foundation have joined the Partnership To Improve Patient Care (PIPC) and Patients Rising led over 100 patient advocacy organizations supporting legislation to prohibit the use of QALYs in federal programs. We also oppose the House effort to finance the patient protections with reprograming the PPHF (see earlier web posting). Available here is February 5 patients advocacy letter: PDF.
