Topic: Colorado and Kansas Approve Coverage for Oral Chemotherapy
The governors of Colorado and Kansas enacted legislation providing out of pocket relief for those cancer patients taking chemotherapy in pill form. Before this change, insurance companies would not pay for chemotherapy in pill form and forced cancer patients to pay for this treatment on their own. Kansas' law goes into effect on July 1 and Colorado's takes effect on January 1. With these two additions, six states, in addition to the District of Columbia, have now passed such legislation.
