Champions in the Fight
The Congressional Task Force on Alzheimer’s Disease has grown bipartisan congressional support for policies that improve the lives of people impacted by Alzheimer’s and all other dementia. The task force was instrumental in building support for the bipartisan National Alzheimer’s Project Act (P.L. 111-375) in 2011, which led to the creation of a national plan to change the way the nation addresses Alzheimer’s and all other dementia.
The Alzheimer’s Impact Movement (AIM) and the Alzheimer’s Association are also proud to work with task force members to raise awareness and help secure critical research funding increases at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), which has increased more than seven-fold since 2011.
Thanks to the work of AIM advocates, in the 117th Congress, there were more than 177 members from both parties and both chambers on the task force.

Access to Treatment
A restrictive Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) policy that only applies to those living with Alzheimer’s disease is blocking access to FDA-approved treatments. CMS must reverse its unprecedented decision that denies Medicare coverage of current and future treatments for Alzheimer’s.
A National Response to Alzheimer’s and Other Dementia
The bipartisan NAPA Reauthorization Act and the Alzheimer’s Accountability and Investment Act would build on the progress made over the last decade by continuing to promote rapid research and improve the delivery of clinical care and services for people living with Alzheimer’s.
