Ensuring Equal Access Under the Law
05.20.13

The International Myeloma Foundation has been hard at work ensuring patients have access to the treatments that are recommended by their physicians through the oral chemotherapy parity legislation around the country. We're thrilled to inform you that twenty-six states and the District of Columbia have passed these critical laws to increase access to oral oncology drugs that are crucial to patient survival. In order to help patients get the most out of these laws we have created a fact sheet to inform you and your clinicians on the specifics of the law and how to help patients in your state contact the correct authorities if their insurance company is not in compliance with the law.

We need YOUR help to get this information to community oncologists! Please print a copy of your state fact sheet to take with you to your next visit with your clinician. The new laws apply to all oral anti-cancer medications, so they will be helpful for every oncologists.

CLICK ON YOUR STATE BELOW TO VIEW/DOWNLOAD A PDF OF YOUR STATE'S LAW OR BE CONNECTED TO THE ACTION CENTER TO LEARN HOW YOU CAN HELP PASS AN ORAL CHEMO PARITY LAW IN YOUR STATE.

If you have any questions, please contact Ray Wezik rwezik@myeloma.org.

THANK YOU for helping us spread the word!
