Access to Adequate, Affordable Health Coverage

ACS CAN will work to ensure that patients have health coverage that provides them adequate, affordable access to cancer preventive services, medications and providers they need. There are a range of bills being considered in 2018 to ensure patients in Maine have access to preventive services like cancer screenings and tobacco cessation and protect patients from annual and lifetime limits on benefits if federal law is changed. In addition, there are bills being considered to ensure patients have access to the medications they need during cancer treatment. Reducing the cancer burden depends on access to meaningful health coverage. ACS CAN will work to advocate for policies that ensure all Mainers have adequate, afforable health coverage.
