The Association of Community Cancer Centers (ACCC) is truly “a community of cancer centers,” representing members nationwide from all care delivery settings: health systems, comprehensive cancer programs, academic centers, community cancer programs, and private practices. ACCC educates and advocates on behalf of its members to ensure they can provide high-quality, comprehensive, and equitable care for patients with cancer and their caregivers.
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 cancer care. These efforts can include advocating equitable access to new therapies and innovative technologies, adequate reimbursement for services and treatments, and equitable access to care and clinical trials. For 2023, ACCC members have identified four core areas of focus, among a larger set of issues and concerns, that the association will be supporting.
In addition to these core areas, ACCC will continue to advocate on issues related to the following themes:
