Cancer clinics rejecting Medicare patients due to sequester cuts

17 hrs ago

The sequester-related budget cuts that have caused headaches minor (no more White House tours) to major (closing air traffic control towers) could also have deadly consequences. Cancer clinics nationwide are turning away thousands of patients with Medicare, because the reduced funding that began April 1 makes it too expensive to administer chemotherapy drugs. Many of the clinics say that rejecting Medicare patients is the only way they can stay in business during sequestration. The reason for the cuts is that chemo drugs are Part B Medicare drugs, which makes them part of the sequester-related cuts. Nice work, Congress. Way to have your constituents’ backs. [Source]
