Chamber Supports Legislation for Medicare Multi-Cancer Early Detection Screening
The Saginaw County Chamber of Commerce supports the Medicare Multi-Cancer Early Detection Screening Coverage Act of 2021. This important bill would allow Medicare to cover a new category of cancer screening – multi-cancer early detection (MCED) – as soon as the technologies are approved by the Food & Drug Administration.
These new detection technologies represent a monumental change in the way we combat cancer. MCED can detect dozens of cancers early, before patients show symptoms, and can identify the cancer and its location in the body.
The bill has received broad bipartisan support with more than 140 Democrats and Republican members of Congress agreeing to cosponsor the legislation. Supporters include Michigan Senators Debbie Stabenow and Gary Peters and Representatives John Moolenaar, Fred Upton and Dan Kildee.
MCED could be the breakthrough needed to completely change the landscape in the war on cancer. This legislation would ensure that Medicare patients and providers can utilize these innovative technologies as soon as possible – which could help save countless lives.
