Support Cancer Parity Legislation in Michigan

Legislation has passed the Michigan House and moved to the state Senate that would ensure patients have access and insurance coverage for all anti-cancer regimens, regardless of the form that they take. H.B. 4354 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.

The bill has been referred to the Michigan Senate Committee on Health Policy and Human Services. In order to move the legislation forward, it is important that you reach out to your state Senator to ask for their support. If you are a Michigan resident, please take a moment to send an email to your state Senator by filling out your contact information below.
