Providing quality care

  • e new law allows more cancer patients and

survivors to get the health care they need by:

  • Doing away with co-pays for proven preventive services in new plans and for those in Medicare

  • Requiring all health plans sold in new health benet exchanges to cover essential benets, such as coverage for cancer screening, treatment, and follow-up care

  • Making sure all people in Medicare get a yearly check-up to discuss disease prevention and other services they need to stay healthy

  • Focusing on treating pain and helping to improve a patient’s quality of life

  • Closing the Medicare “doughnut hole” so seniors don’t face a costly gap in prescription drug coverage

  • Making coverage available for patients who take part in clinical trials
