Susan G. Komen® Urges Congress to Include Vital Policies for Breast Cancer Community in Upcoming COVID-19 Relief Bill

Susan G. Komen® submitted a letter to congressional leaders on Monday, April 14 urging Congress to include vital policies for the breast cancer community in the upcoming COVID-19 relief bill.

These policies include:

  • Implementing chemotherapy parity.
  • Declaring clinical trials for treatments for life-threatening conditions to be essential.
  • Opening Healthcare.gov enrollment.
  • Addressing surprise medical billing.
  • Ensuring non-profit sustainability.

Breast cancer patients are at higher risk of serious illness from COVID-19, and they deserve to have the resources, protections, and treatment they need during this pandemic.
