GRASSROOTS ADVOCACY AT WORK!

Update on LB 882 known as the "chemo parity bill". This legislation passed and was signed by Governor Heineman on 4/6/2012 originally with a sunset / expiration date. In the most recent legislative session, the sunset date for this bill was removed. Thank you for all those who helped by sending letters into senators and serving as advocates for our patients! 7/26/14

 ASCO Payment Reform Educational Series

This five-part ASCO in Action educational series is designed to help ASCO members better understand the complex issue of physician payment reform:  Part 1 provides an overview of the issue; Part 2 discusses the Sustainable Growth Rate formula; Part 3 provides details on the current buy and bill system of reimbursing for oncology drugs; Part 4 discusses payment reform options being considered as alternatives to the current fee-for-service system and calls to action; and Part 5 presents a proposal for patient-centered reform through an episodic approach to oncology care.
