Cancer Treatment Fairness Act looks to eliminate disparity in chemo coverage
Parameswaran Hari, MD, MS, the Armand Quick – William Stapp Professor of Hematology and director of the Adult Blood and Marrow Transplant Program, discussed a proposal that would mandate insurance coverage of oral chemotherapies. Currently in Wisconsin, health insurance covers chemotherapies delivered via IV differently than chemotherapies taken orally. The bill is called the Cancer Treatment Fairness Act and is co-sponsored by a bipartisan group of nearly 60 state lawmakers.
