We now bring to you a guest blog from the cancer advocacy group Navigating Cancer Survivorship, which provides education and resources to health care professionals, survivors, and caregivers regarding the continuum of cancer survivorship.

As previous blog posts have indicated, there are several laws that benefit and protect those coping with cancer. Some of these laws deal with health insurance coverage when participating in a clinical trial. Most recently, Illinois passed the “Qualified Clinical Cancer Trials” law, which has been in effect since January 1, 2012. This law, in essence, requires health insurers to pay for routine patient care expenses associated with qualifying clinical trials. Routine care costs are expenses that patients would have if they were getting standard cancer care, such as office visits, lab tests, and x-rays.

However, as we unfortunately know, it often takes more than a law to ensure that people are protected...to read the rest of this post and learn about the clinical trial laws in your state go to the Navigating Cancer Survivorship blog.

Luck. I'm a gynecologist in Madrid and there is nothing worse than telling a patient who has cancer.

I'm a cancer survivor, and I have to say this Qualified Clinical Cancer Trials law will help a lot of people experiencing cancer.
