MASAC applauds the willingness of the payer community to work with NHF to insure that patients achieve access to the full spectrum of essential services offered through the comprehensive care setting of a Hemophilia Treatment Center (HTC).

MASAC encourages all HTCs to support this dialogue and the sharing of their experiences and relevant data to improve a mutual understanding of the role of HTCs in the on-going provision of care between a patient's regularly scheduled yearly comprehensive care visits.
