Principle 3 states that:
"Equality of access (and equality of insurance coverage) should be available for all patients to all approved cancer treatments."
- Every cancer patient should have access to the treatments recommended by their physicians.
- Patients should not suffer from cost discrimination based on the type of therapy provided or the mechanism of delivery.
- Oral drugs should have the same coverage as intravenous drugs, surgery, radiation, transplantation, etc.
- The Medicare donut hole is an arbitrary and unfair burden on our most vulnerable citizens.
