Did You Know?? Major Changes Are Coming To Medicare For All Cancer Patients!

BY GARY PETERSEN Most people are unaware of what is happening with the payment system for Medicare Part B, or the new ICER report which may limit your cancer treatment options, but they are just on the horizon.  These changes have been initiated to confront the out-of-control price increases for existing cancer drugs and the outrageous prices for the newly developed drugs. Renowned hematologist and oncologist Dr. Vincent Rajkumar of Mayo Clinic will be featured on Cure Talks to help to explain these proposed changes, along with his ideas on how to help control the high cost of cancer care.  This is a not-miss opportunity to find out about these proposed changes.  This broadcast will be on May 19th, at 6:00PM EST, and you can learn more about it and sign up to listen if you CLICK HERE.
