Congressional Bill Introduced To Fix Problem With Faulty Medicare Payment For Cancer Drugs
Date:2/27/2013

ts patient care," said Dr. Mark Thompson , COA president and an oncologist at the Zangmeister Center, Columbus, Ohio.  "H.R. 800 will help stem the crisis that is plaguing cancer care."

Congress has already fixed a similar flaw with Medicaid by removing the inclusion of prompt pay discounts. The inclusion of the prompt pay discounts in Medicare cause many cancer drugs to be reimbursed at less than their acquisition. The House Energy & Commerce Committee actually included the fix contained in H.R. 800 in their version of health care reform several years ago. COA believes it is now time to pass H.R. 800 into law and help preserve the nation's cancer care delivery system.  

About Community Oncology Alliance (COA)

Celebrating its 10th anniversary during 2013, the Community Oncology Alliance (COA) is a non-profit organization dedicated solely to community cancer care, where four out of five Americans with cancer are treated.   Since its formation, COA has helped community cancer clinics navigate an increasingly hostile environment by working together to become more efficient, advocating for their patients, and proactively providing solutions to the Congress and policy makers. COA members have testified before both chambers of Congress, authored cancer care demonstration projects, been instrumental in the passage of oral cancer drug parity legislation, among many other initiatives. COA is leading a multi-stakeholder group that is developing and implementing an Oncology Medical Home cancer care model and is advancing payment reform for cancer care. More information can be found at www.CommunityOncology.org.  

The COA Patient Advocacy Network (CPAN) was created in 2010 to advocate for access to local affordable care for all cancer patients. More information can be found at www.COAadvocac
