SCAI Seeks Revision to HTAP Draft Evidence Report

from SCAI

This week, SCAI submitted comments on Washington State's Health Technology Assessment Program (HTAP) draft evidence report surrounding coronary stents in cardiovascular patients.

The state will use this information in the assessment, which is intended to develop coverage policies for State employees and others covered by the state. Possible coverage policy changes will be discussed at a Jan. 15 meeting. SCAI is focused on these issues in Washington because the state tends to be a national trendsetter.

Upon review of the draft document, SCAI feels that the report adds little to established guidelines and appropriate use criteria that already exist and are followed by interventional cardiologists.
