Four U.S. Senators have introduced legislation designed to increase patient access to medical devices by giving them the option of self-paying rather than going through the time-consuming Medicare coverage process.
Sens. Michael Bennet (D-Colo.), Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.), Rob Portman (R-Ohio), and John Thune (R-S.D.) are sponsoring the Accelerating Innovation in Medicine (AIM) Act to enable physicians to provide patients with more timely choices when deciding the best approach for their healthcare.
