Karen Knudsen: I am encouraged by the announcement that coverage for patient navigation is expanding in commercial health insurance plans and comprehensive cancer centers

Karen Knudsen shared a post on LinkedIn:

As such, I am encouraged by the announcement that coverage for patient navigation is expanding in commercial health insurance plans and comprehensive cancer centers, and community oncology clinics are committed to using patient navigation codes to increase coverage.

Increasing coverage of patient navigation will not only improve the patient experience, but improve patient outcomes, bringing us closer to ending cancer as we know it, for everyone.”
