MOASC partners with the editorial staff of Targeted Oncology (TO) who have begun planning for Pancreatic Cancer and Lung Cancer awareness month next month. They are reaching out to MOASC Members who would want to participate in a 15-minute interview. This would be oncologist focused in either disease area. The goal is to let the physician guide the discussion and see what they would like to focus on for the awareness month. To read more click here and go to MOASC News.
The California Medical Association (CMA) has published their 2020 Voter Guide, which includes CMA’s positions on November 2020 statewide ballot measures. We hope that you will show up to the polls (or mail in your vote-by-mail ballot) and ensure the voices of physicians are heard loud and clear. To read more click here and go to California News.
On September 13, 2020, the Trump Administration issued the “Lowering Drug Prices by Putting Americans First” executive order (EO), which would implement a Most Favored Nation (MFN) model. The MFN model would base prices for certain Medicare Part B and Part D drugs and biologics on the lowest price offered in foreign countries. MOASC and the National Oncology State Network (NOSN) joined the Community Oncology Alliance (COA) in opposition to the EO. We urge against the implementation of the MFN as it will negatively impact community oncologists and the patients they serve. To read more click here and go to National News.
