Dignitana AB (publ), manufacturer of The DigniCap® Scalp Cooling System, announces that HB3984, the bill providing coverage for scalp cooling that the company initiated in February with Texas State legislators, was passed in the Texas House of Representatives on Friday. The Bill now moves to the Senate where it will be introduced by Sen. Angela Paxton. Once passed in the Senate, the Bill then requires approval by Texas Governor Greg Abbott before being signed into law.
“As a company with operations based in Texas, we were honored to work with Rep. Jeff Leach to get landmark legislation introduced and passed to provide cancer patients with coverage for scalp cooling,” said William Cronin, CEO of Dignitana AB. “This type of financial support is critical to making scalp cooling available to all cancer patients. Even as we continue to support this bill’s progression in Texas, we are already working on similar legislation in other states and at a national level.”
