Last week, the Pennsylvania House of Representatives’ Insurance Committee passed HB 620, The Hemophilia Standards of Care unanimously and without amendments. It is likely that the full House will consider the bill聽within the next several days.

As a national community it is incumbent that we continue to support the efforts of the local Bleeding Disorders community. If you have contacts, friends, family, etc. in the Keystone State please ask them to聽 please call their State Representative member this week and ask them to vote “YES” on HB 620 when it is brought to the floor of the House later on this week in Harrisburg.

Again kudos to the organized bleeding disorders community across Pennsylvania, on this important milestone. Let’s redouble our efforts and help push this across the finish line in the Statehouse. Thank you for all you have done to further this important legislation.聽 Keep the pressure up!!
