Tell Congress to Support Equal Access to All Cancer Treatments

ImageMany cancer patients have to pay significantly more out of their own pockets for oral cancer treatments (i.e., pills) than they do for intravenous (IV) treatments. That is why LRF is supporting the Cancer Drug Coverage Parity Act, which would ensure oral treatments are covered in the same manner as IV treatments.

Members of the lymphoma community can contact their lawmakers and ask them to support this important legislation by visiting the LRF website.

Take Action — Tell Your Representative to Support the Cancer Coverage Parity Act!

The Lymphoma Research Foundation (LRF) is working to ensure that lymphoma patients have equal and appropriate access to all cancer treatments. Currently, many patients have to pay significantly more out-of-pocket for oral treatments (i.e., pills) than they do for intravenous treatments. Please join LRF in advocating for legislation that would ensure oral treatments are covered in the same manner as intravenous treatments.
