  1. Payment and coverage issues affecting medical oncology.

    Article - En anglais

    Medical oncologists continue to face significant issues in obtaining full payment for and coverage of their services by third-party payers.

    A number of issues raised by the Medicare fee schedule have, however, been at least partially resolved in a favorable manner.

    There continue to be problems in coverage of off-label drug uses and services associated with clinical trials.

    The impending reform of the health care system may improve the situation or it may give rise to further difficulties.
