Trial study with medicare IVIG demonstration

Has anyone been accepted for this demonstration? I was "approved to participate in the Medicare IVIG Demonstration". The letter also said that to qualify you must have PIDD (Primary Immune Deficiency Disease) . When I called to get information on suppliers, I asked what they meant by PIDD and was told that PIDD had to be the diagnoses. I said that on the application form I had put that I had CIDP, She said that the doctor had to put DIPP to qualify. So I don't know where I stand at this time. My doctor is trying to get more information. Ethel

I have read and re-read that article and nowhere does it mention CIDP only PIDD. I have look everywhere on the internet for a definition of PIDD. I found one that said PIDD included over 100 different kinds of neuropathy but did not give a complete list of the different kinds and did not mention CIDP. I am still waiting for my doctor to call back on what info she was able to find.
