Thanks to modern research and medical innovation, cancer therapies are advancing every day. Yet cancer patients are often not given access to these treatments due to the lack of buy-in from health insurance companies. Misinformation and outdated mindsets continue to steer coverage decisions that affect people whose lives are literally slipping away. Physicians are caught in limbo watching these amazing new treatment options come to light yet knowing that the cost of receiving them is impossible for most patients. It’s time for cancer patients to have a say in their treatment and for insurance companies to catch up with the forward-thinking people who are finding these life-saving options. The disparity between what options are available and what options are covered needs to end.
