ACCC Joins in Coalition Letter Urging Protection of Medicare Part B

In a June 8, 2017, letter to U.S. Health & Human Services Secretary Thomas Price, the Association of Community Cancer Centers (ACCC) joined with 269 organizations in urging protection of the Medicare Part B reimbursement program for drugs and biologicals administered by physicians.

The letter asks that MedPAC’s “Drug Value Program” be rejected, stating that “[the program] would create a middleman between doctors and their patients by placing new restrictions on treatment decisions that currently do not exist within Part B. We urge you to reject the use of the MedPAC proposals and any such proposals that over-bureaucratize Part B.”
