Action: Ask Your Representative to Support the Increasing Access to Lung Cancer Screening Act!

Reps. Higgins (D-NY), Fitzpatrick (R-PA), and Castor (D-FL) have reintroduced the Increasing Access to Lung Cancer Screening Act (H.R. 4286), a legislative priority for LUNGevity and the lung cancer community.

This bipartisan bill would ensure that lung cancer screening is covered without cost sharing and without prior authorization requirements across all types of insurance for those currently included in screening guidelines. The bill would also expand eligibility for tobacco cessation services in Medicaid; establish a nationwide public awareness campaign on the importance of lung cancer screening; and authorize a study and report to Congress on the demographics of people diagnosed with lung cancer but not included in current screening guidelines.

Write your representative today and ask them to co-sponsor the Increasing Access to Lung Cancer Screening Act!
