Weathering the medicare storm

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

Change is afoot in medical oncology. We are just weeks away from the enactment of the Medicare Modernization Act of 2003, which thrusts an untested method of drug reimbursement into a cancer care delivery system already struggling to absorb profound changes coming from many directions. What can practices, whether large or small, do to deal with the uncertainty? Community Oncology's Editor-in-Chief offers concrete suggestions.
