IMF Pushes Wisconsin Lawmakers to Pass the Cancer Treatment Fairness Act

IMF advocate Tom Chellius and National State Affairs Consultant Zina Cary testified this week at a hearing held by the Wisconsin State Senate Insurance & Housing Committee in support of Senate Bill 300 (Cancer Treatment Fairness Act). The bill would require insurers in Wisconsin to cover oral anticancer therapies at rate equal to intravenous, or IV, treatments. Joining the IMF in the packed hearing room were members of the Wisconsin Coalition for Cancer Treatment Access (WCCTA) and the bill's legislative champions, State Senator Alberta Darling and State Representative Pat Strachota.
