Cancer Patients’ Bill of Rights

The Cancer Patients Bill of Rights outlines six key principles, proclaiming that cancer patients have a right to:

  • Understand fully their diagnosis and be informed about treatment options in culturally appropriate and understandable languages
  • Transparent and timely processes that ensure access to contracting oncology specialists, diagnostic testing and accurate interpretations of those tests
  • Contracting cancer subspecialists who have expertise in the treatment of their subtypes of cancer when complex decisions are needed
  • Medical treatments for pain management and other services that support their overall health
  • Contracting National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer centers and leading academic medical centers for the management of complex cancers that require multiple experts or high-risk or emerging therapies
  • Relevant clinical trials, medical research and cutting-edge innovation, including evidence-supported precision medicine
