4-11-14 fdl oncologist says new chemo bill a blessing for cancer patients

A Fond du Lac oncologist says a new law designed to lower the cost of chemotherapy drugs in pill form is a blessing for many cancer patients. Governor Scott Walker signed the measure that requires health insurers
to charge the same price for chemo pills, which can be taken at home, as for intravenous treatments, which are administered at hospitals.  Dr. Lundberg says he has had patients who up until now simply haven’t been able to afford chemo pills.   Lundberg says the pills aren’t necessarily more effective, but are certainly

more convenient.
