The Promote Infusion Therapy Coverage at Home (PITCH In) campaign raises funds to help support NHIA’s many legislative, policy and advocacy activities. Specifically, (PITCH In) contributions help NHIA retain lobbyists and lawyers to help advance our advocacy efforts, and also go toward grassroots software, social media technology, and other tools and resources that help our messages get to policymakers. NHIA is dedicating extra resources to pursue legislation to allow home infusion providers to serve Medicare beneficiaries during the public health emergency related to COVID-19.
(PITCH In) funds are also being used to offset costs associated with NHIA’s litigation against the Department of Health and Human Services over the government’s implementation of the home infusion transitional payment rule. Taking legal action is a costly endeavor, and the decision to pursue this course took place after NHIA’s 2019 budget was completed.

(PITCH) stands for Promote Infusion Therapy Coverage at Home. It represents the need for the home infusion community to work together to ensure Medicare beneficiaries have access to infusion therapy in their homes not just in physician’s offices, hospitals, and other institutional settings. As members of the home infusion community working to improve patient out comes, you can play a role in advancing Medicare reform by contributing to (PITCH In) .
NHIA is leading the battle to promote home infusion coverage in Medicare and continues to dedicate considerable resources into advocating in Congress and with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to promote the value of home infusion therapy so that lawmakers will act to change the Medicare program. However, the resource-intensive effort to drive legislation through Congress requires additional expenditures. NHIA needs your help as we push forward with a concerted effort in government affairs, public relations, grassroots activism, and media awareness. All of these activities, in coordination, are necessary if we want Congress to change Medicare policy to benefit beneficiaries in need of home infusion therapy.
Whether you are a provider of home infusion therapy or a supplier to the field, you have a keen interest in making sure Medicare beneficiaries can receive infusion therapy in the home setting. Medicare coverage of home infusion therapy will positively impact patients and the field long-term. Consider contributing to NHIA in support of the accelerated legislative battle now underway.
