Cancer Treatment Fairness Act
Komen Central Florida took a leading role in advocating for cancer patients with regard to anti-cancer medications and insurance coverage. After 3 years of actively advocating on behalf of cancer patients, we can finally say that in 2013, Florida became an Oral parity state!
We thank Governor Rick Scott for demonstrating his commitment to increasing access to life-saving, orally-administered cancer treatments by signing The Cancer Treatment Fairness Act into law. Thanks to this new law, Florida’s cancer patients will see improved access to the medications and treatments they need to battle their disease, as this law addresses the unfairly high out-of-pocket costs too often associated with orally-administered cancer treatments. We are proud to say that Florida now joins 24 other states, plus the District of Columbia, in addressing this longstanding disparity
