Urge Your Senators and Representative to Support the Cancer Drug Coverage Parity Act
Legislation has been reintroduced in the U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate that would ensure that patients enrolled in certain federally regulated health plans have access and insurance coverage for all anti-cancer regimens. The Cancer Drug Coverage Parity Act (S.741 / H.R.1730) would require any health plan that provides coverage for cancer chemotherapy treatment to provide coverage for orally administered and self-injectable anticancer medications at a cost no less favorable than the cost of IV, port administered, or injected anticancer medications.
Your Senators and Representative need to cosponsor these bills in order for them to be considered by the full Congress. Please take a moment to send an e-mail to your Senators and Representative by filling out the form below. You are encouraged to personalize the letters as much as possible by providing examples of how the cost of oral or self-administered chemotherapy drugs has impacted you or your patients.
