Elizabeth F. Franklin: In order for Indian Health Service (IHS) institutions to be able to cover specialty drugs, the CMS payment rate must be augmented.

As stated by Elizabeth F. Franklin, Head of US Public Affairs and Patient Advocacy, on LinkedIn:

”Thank you to The Cancer Letter for covering the critically important issue of specialty care, including cancer care, on tribal lands. In order for Indian Health Service (IHS) institutions to be able to cover specialty drugs, the CMS payment rate must be augmented.
CMS is accepting comments on the 2024 Hospital Outpatient Prospective Payment System (OPPS) and Ambulatory Surgical Center (ASC) Payment System Proposed Rule.
It’s vital to get this right so that patients on the Navajo Nation can continue to receive culturally-sensitive, high-quality, local oncology care.”
