Legislative Action Center

Together we can help key policy makers at the federal and local levels better understand how their decisions on policy and legislation impact community oncology care. State and federal legislation can have a real impact on patient access to quality cancer care and the financial viability of your organization. This is why it's so important for ACCC and Oncology State Society members to offer their on-the-frontline perspectives to the legislative process.
