NCCS joined its colleagues in the Cancer Leadership Council in publishing a statement of principles to guide reform of Medicare payment for cancer care. Major news outlets have suggested that Medicare beneficiaries are not receiving their cancer care due to the 2% cuts in Medicare payments required under the sequestration. NCCS and other cancer advocates have pledged to monitor the impact of sequestration on cancer patients. While sequestration is a concern, major reform of Medicare payment for cancer care is needed, and the CLC identified principles that would ensure a more patient-focused system of care.
