    Dear Speaker Pelosi, Majority Leader Schumer, Republican Leader McCarthy, and Minority Leader McConnell:

    On behalf of radiation oncology stakeholder organizations, including radiation oncologists, medical physicists, medical dosimetrists, radiation oncology administrators, and other members of the radiation oncology cancer care team, patients, group practices, hospitals, device manufacturers and more, we urge you to protect patients’ access to life-saving cancer care by passing legislation this year to prevent massive Medicare payment cuts to radiation oncology. Radiation oncology is poised to meaningfully contribute to ending cancer as we know it and advancing health equity, but the nearly $300 million in cuts starting on Jan. 1, 2022, will devastate a critical component of our nation’s cancer care delivery system, reducing access to high quality care close to patient’s homes.
