Coalition for Cancer Drug Coverage Parity Converges in Washington D.C.

Last week, the Patients Equal Access Coalition (PEAC) headed to The Hill in Washington, D.C. to support the Cancer Drug Coverage Parity Act (HR 2746) introduced by Representative Brian Higgins (D-NY 27th). The IMF and volunteers from seven other PEAC member organizations held nearly 30 meetings with representatives and senators to encourage support of our efforts in improving insurance coverage for oral chemotherapy. Many thanks to the more than 100 activists from across the country who participated, contacting nearly 100 different legislators by phone or email.

HR 2746 currently has 40 co-sponsors. Click here to see if your representative is a co-sponsor. If he/she has not yet signed on as a supporter, please send an email through our Action Center today!

PEAC, founded by the International Myeloma Foundation in 2010, is a patient-focused coalition working to ensure that cancer patients have equal and appropriate access to all cancer treatments. For more information on PEAC, please visit peac.myeloma.org.
