MSCO joined Massachusetts ACS CAN and other state organizations in letters of support, for the following federal bill, that were sent to all Massachusetts state congress members. H.R. 2407: the Nancy Gardner Sewell Medicare Multi-Cancer Early Detection Screening Coverage Act
We requested that all members of the Massachusetts delegation support this most important bill. The early detection of cancer gives patients the greatest hope of beating the disease. This legislation recognizes the extraordinary unmet need in early detection of many different types of cancer, and will modernize Medicare, allowing the agency to determine coverage of multi-cancer early detection tests once FDA approved and when clinical benefit is shown, resulting in further reducing suffering and death from cancer for everyone.
