Patient Advocacy

To ensure that cancer patients continue to have access to the latest advancements, Texas Oncology maintains a strong voice in patient advocacy. Our national network not only allows us to play a unique role, it compels us to do so. Texas Oncology is obligated to help patients access the information they need to make rational decisions about care and care-related public policy initiatives. Therefore, we serve as a resource for patient advocacy groups, help those on the front lines of patient care reform, and communicate with patients on issues relating to treatment choices and rights.

The following resources offer important information and action alerts on public policies and legislative issues affecting cancer care.

US Oncology LegisLink
A Community Education Service of US Oncology. Among the many resources included here are tips on meeting with your Senators and Representatives; a Public Relations toolkit and access to Sign-On Letters for cancer care.

National Patient Advocacy Foundation
A national non-profit organization providing the patient voice in improving access to, and reimbursement for, high-quality healthcare through regulatory and legislative reform at the state and federal levels. NPAF translates the experience of millions of patients who have been helped through professional case management services to individuals facing barriers to healthcare access for chronic and disabling disease, medical debt crisis and employment-related issues at no cost.
