On November 30th, Kathy Oubre, a Community Oncology Alliance leader, attended emergency meetings with Congress and the Administration to discuss the negative impact the Medicare sequester cut would have on cancer patients. 


The emergency Community Oncology Alliance (COA) fly-in was prompted by the continued momentum of the tax bill in both the U.S. House and Senate which would double the current sequester cut, and by a proposed extension of the sequester. 

Physicians and practice administrators from across the country reworked schedules and moved patient visits to warn policymakers of the real dangers that the continued use of the sequester cut as a budget gimmick would have a very real and dangerous impact on cancer care in the United States. #cancer #hope
