At the conclusion of her testimony, Davenport Ennis made the following plea:"These Medicare cancer patients need Congress' help to ensure that the health care they require is as conveniently located as possible. Congress must correct the way the sequester is applied to Medicare Part B drug reimbursements and eliminate these cuts that cruelly punish cancer patients. Further, Congress should enact H.R. 800, which removes prompt pay discounts from the calculation of Medicare reimbursement rates to make the ASP formula more closely resemble average costs. Additionally, Congress must stop incentivizing the shift to the hospital outpatient department setting. ASP can work only if it is fair and accurate, and it is up to Congress to ensure that this is the case."
