Help Stop Medicare Cuts to Cancer Care!

  • 85% of all cancer patients are treated at a community oncology center. Community oncologists provide advanced care in a convenient setting that is often closer to patients’ homes than large hospital-based cancer centers.
  • Sequester cuts to Medicare reimbursement for cancer medications may threaten the ability of community-based oncologists to remain in local communities.
  • Over 70% of community-based oncology practices say they may be forced to send patients to hospitals for some or all of their chemotherapy. This process is expected to cost taxpayers an extra $2 Billion (and not save any money) because hospitals are reimbursed at a higher rate.
