NAMI Presses CMS to Ensure that Atypical Antipsychotics are Included in the Upcoming Medicare Part B Competitive Acquisition Program (CAP)

August 4, 2005

Earlier this year, NAMI pushed the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to include atypical antipsychotic medications in the Part B CAP program covering non-self-injectible medications administered in physician offices and clinics.  In July, CMS issued rules clarifying that antipsychotic medications will be included in the program.  NAMI's letter to CMS is posted below.
