ACCC’s 2023 Advocacy Agenda and Priorities

CANCER BUZZ

May 4 2023 • 4 mins

Each year, ACCC is active at the state and federal level, advocating on behalf of its members to ensure that the rules and regulations in place do not in any way impede the delivery of high-quality cancer care. In 2023, ACCC members identified four core areas of focus among a larger set of issues and concerns that the organization will support: 1) Protect Adequate and Stable Reimbursement for Oncology Providers; 2) Reduce Delays in Care Due to Utilization Management; 3) Preserve Provider and Patient Choice in Cancer Treatment; and 4) Improve Access to and Coverage of Supportive Oncology Services.

Guest:

Barbara Schmidtman, PhD

Vice President of Operations, Corewell Health West

Chair, Governmental Affairs Committee, Association of Community Cancer Centers

“Continued access to telehealth coverage is an important topic that we need to continue to bring up over the next several years...as we look at the shortage of medical oncologists and other specially-trained providers and…the rural communities that do not always have access to highly-specialized or sub-specialized clinicians, the use of telehealth is incredibly impactful for providing care to those rural communities.”
