Payer Update

A Thank You to the Hemophilia Alliance
By Helen McIntyre, MBA, FACHE, Vice President of Operations, University of Minnesota/Fairview Center for Bleeding and Clotting Disorders

Last November, Jeff Amond from the Hemophilia Alliance stepped in to help represent treatment centers that align with the local chapter in Minnesota (Hemophilia Foundation of Minnesota and Dakotas) at a first ever Manufacturer Symposium. Jeff was on hand and was able to explain to patients the importance of the HTC team in helping patients make an informed decision about their treatment therapy as well as providing top-notch care. He was also able to remind folks the importance of 340B. We received very positive feedback about how helpful and professional Jeff was.

This is just one example of many, illustrating the clear membership value with the Hemophilia Alliance. I so appreciate that the team is simply an e-mail or call away and that we can always count on them when challenging issues arise.
