The Oncology State Societies at ACCC is a network of 21 state societies that are managed by the Association of Community Cancer Centers (ACCC) and are members of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) State/Regional Affiliate Program. Societies receive select benefits in the ACCC, participate on the ASCO State Affiliate Council, and develop state-specific educational resources to help members stay ahead of the shifting healthcare landscape and challenges that directly impact the high-quality care their patients deserve.
On Friday, December 4, the Association of Community Cancer Centers (ACCC) joined the Global Colon Cancer Association, the National Infusion Center Association, and the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America to file a lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, seeking an immediate injunction to prevent the implementation of the Most Favored Nation (MFN) Model Interim Final Rule.
UPDATE: On January 13, 2021, a federal court agreed to a stay in the lawsuit filed by the Association of Community Cancer Centers (ACCC) and other organizations. ACCC’s challenge to the MFN Model has been placed on hold, by agreement with the government, because the government has decided to not appeal the preliminary injunction in the BIO/CLSA litigation that prevents CMS from implementing the model. The public comment period on the MFN Model interim final rule ends on Tuesday, January 26, 2021. Read more.
We are sharing our support for this legal action which was taken on behalf of the providers that our state societies serve, their patients, and our greater communities.
