Lung Cancer Alliance National Framework Guides Responsible Screening For Those At Risk

Wellpoint, one of the largest health insurers in the country, included screening as a covered benefit for those at high risk in November 2011. Other commercial insurers are starting to act.

"It is time for policy makers to act. Screening needs to be available to those at high risk of lung cancer and it should be rated as an essential service under the Affordable Care Act, said Cheryl G. Healton, Dr. PH, LCA Board member and President and CEO of Legacy, the national public health foundation devoted to keeping young people from smoking and helping all smokers quit.

Lung Cancer Alliance (LCA), www.lungcanceralliance.org, is committed to ending injustice and saving lives through an alliance of advocacy, education, and support. LCA provides live, professional support, referral and information services for patients, their loved ones and those at risk for lung cancer; advocates for multiple millions in public health dollars for lung cancer research; and conducts national awareness campaigns.
