Date:12/11/2009

the 2010 21.2% Medicare reimbursement payment cut affecting all physician-related services and fix the broken Medicare payment system based on the SGR formula.
4. Stop cutting cancer care reimbursement further by using cuts to pay for primary care bonuses.
5. Fix the problem of artificially low Medicare drug reimbursement by including the “prompt pay” solution in health care reform legislation.
6. Eliminate the 20% Medicare patient co-payment requirement for cancer drugs.

A full statement is listed the organization’s web site (www.communityoncology.org).

Congress must act now as health care reform legislation is being debated because the risk of getting this wrong is too great, both as measured in medical costs and the lives of Americans.”
