Who are we?

Founded in 2002, the Missouri Oncology Society (MOS) is a non-profit organization with a diverse community of members, including physicians, nurses, pharmacists, practice administrators, billers, coders, and industry dedicated to the care of cancer patients. Society members serve on the Medicare Carrier Advisory Committee (CAC) in Missouri as representatives for oncology and hematology. As the oncology society in Missouri, we strive to provide our members with innovative resources to help them stay ahead of the shifting healthcare landscape and challenges that directly impact the high-quality care their patients deserve.

We are a Chapter Member of the Association of Community Cancer Centers and a State Affiliate of the American Society of Clinical Oncology.

To carry out our mission, we strive to:

  • Improve the delivery of services in Missouri;
  • Study the socio-economic aspects and consider these findings in facilitating management of these diseases;
  • Sponsor educational programs for clinicians;
  • Promote interchange between clinicians;
  • Safeguard the rights of patients;
  • Serve as an advocate and liaison to governmental and insurance interests on behalf of patients;
  • Disseminate information regarding legislative and regulatory developments;
  • Promote scientific inquiry and exchange of clinical information;
  • Establish and maintain high medical and ethical standards; and
  • Promote fellowship among its members.

In order to carry out these interests, our goals are to:

  • Affect legislation and public policy relative to patient access to cancer care;
  • Act as a resource on the "accepted medical practices" associated with cancer care;
  • Provide a forum for education of our members on current technologies and their role as accepted medical practices; and
  • Provide communications to our members and others on issues affecting patient access to cancer care and the practice of oncology.
