Dr. Clifford A. Hudis, president of the American Society of Clinical Oncology, praised the agreement for providing funds that could restore cuts in medical research and cancer care at the National Institutes of Health. He expressed disappointment, however, that the bill does not reverse cuts to Medicare, including reductions in the payments for physician-administered drugs under Medicare Part B.
“Oncologists are doing everything possible to continue providing care for Medicare patients, but this reduction has forced many in private practice to send patients to hospitals for chemotherapy because they cannot afford to administer these drugs in their office,” Dr. Hudis said in a statement.
