SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DATES: I. Background The Department of Health and Human Services, Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation has contracted with Eastern Research Group, Inc. (ERG) to develop an analysis of supply, distribution, demand, and access issues associated with IVIG. As part of this analysis, a Town Hall meeting is being scheduled to obtain public comment on access issues to be used in the analysis. Intravenous Immune Globulin (IVIG) is a plasma product that is used to treat patients with immune system disorders. Immune globulins are antibodies. IVIG has a number of on-label uses including treatment of humoral immunodeficiency, acute and chronic idiopathic thrombocytopenia purpura, B cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia (to prevent recurrent bacterial infections), Kawasaki disease, pediatric HIV, and bone marrow transplantation. It is also used for off-label treatments including autoimmune, neurological, and systemic inflammatory conditions. According to the Department of Health and Human Services Advisory Committee on Blood Safety and Availability, more than half of IVIG use may be for off-label indications. Due at least in part to the increase in off-label uses, demand for IVIG has increased in recent years. The number of infusion days in hospitals increased to 70,000 days in 2004 from 40,000 days in 2002 and the number of grams infused in physician offices increased by 1.7 million grams, between 2003 and 2004, from 2.3 to 4.0 million grams. IVIG is covered under Medicare Part B. In 2005, Medicare shifted from Average Wholesale Price (AWP) as the basis for reimbursement to Average E:\FR\FM\08SEN1.SGM 08SEN1
