Joint Statement On The President's Budget From The American Society Of Clinical Oncology, Community Oncology Alliance, ION Solutions and The US Oncology Network
Date:4/12/2013

oncerned that the President's budget could severely impede the essential cancer-fighting services provided by integrated community cancer clinics.  The Administration has proposed significant limitations on the ability of oncologists to order follow-up positron emission tomography (PET) scans for cancer treatment management and planning.  Prior payment cuts to advanced imaging services, as well as therapeutic radiation, have further pressured integrated community cancer clinics, potentially eroding effective delivery and coordination of integrated care to Medicare seniors.  This is counter to the President's expressed goals for health reform. 

We appreciate and support the President's concern to decrease the costs of health care.  We are working with the Congress on new processes and payment models to further increase the quality and efficiency of cancer care.  However, continuing reductions in payment for cancer drugs and other treatment related services undermine our efforts to ensure and enhance the delivery of quality, accessible, and efficient cancer care.  We have evolved the world's best cancer care delivery system over the last 40 years, but it is now in crisis.  The sequester cut to cancer drugs is accelerating that crisis and certain budget provisions will worsen it further. 

We ask Congress to strengthen the nation's cancer care delivery by interceding to correct an already flawed Medicare payment system and to immediately stop the sequester cut to cancer drugs.  Legislation has already been introduced in the Congress (H.R. 800 and H.R. 1416) that would accomplish those two objectives.  We also ask Congress to stop any administrative actions and reject budget proposals that will jeopardize the delivery of quality, efficient cancer care for seniors and all Americans battling cancer.
