    We are pleased to announce a new program that will benefit all of our members and our community. CHPS otherwise known as California Hemophilia Program Support Inc. is a nonprofit tax except organization which has been created to aid in the quality of home care and support the community of bleeding disorders, through education support and high certification standards.

    Qualifying home care companies need a good history of serving the community of bleeding disorders; demonstrate a working knowledge of hemophilia and bleeding disorder products and care, offer full range of services within the community, have inventory in stock to provide service, supply a 24 hour toll free number that will make pharmacists and shipments of medication available so that members can access their medication at any time, and provide for the fact that despite provided expected costs  be expected to inform the consumer of any changes to costs, but make an effort to provide treatment and costs at lowest possible price. They must also fully comply with AB389.

    We feel a great change is coming and with the introduction of the CHPS program we are well on our way to achieving our goals for the year of making the hemophilia community one joint family and raising awareness of the bleeding disorder community.

    We are pleased to introduce the following company that has been certified.
