Sep 16, 2020 | Trustees

Dr Marc Matrana recently did an interview for Healthcare Journal of New Orleans. In this article he mentions Cancer Advocacy Group of Louisiana’s bill that recently passed into law at Louisiana State Legislature.

“On a related note, the Louisiana legislature recently passed a bill for patients with advanced cancer who tumors are driven by specific underlying mutations. The bill mandates insurance coverage for therapies which specifically target these mutations (regardless of whether the therapy is approved for patient’s tumor type), in cases where patients have exhausted other approved options. The Louisiana Cancer Advocacy Group (cag-la.org) was instrumental in passing this progressive precision medicine law. “
