The US Oncology Network PAC Hosts New York Oncology Hematology for a Breakfast with Rep. Paul Tonko in Albany


On Friday, December 8, The US Oncology Network PAC hosted New York Oncology Hematology (NYOH) for a one-hour breakfast fundraiser supporting local representative Congressman Paul Tonko (NY-20) in Albany, New York.

During the one-hour event, NYOH was able to thank Rep. Tonko for his prior support of radiation oncology and discuss current legislative issues important to the practice and The Network. Topics focused on the Medicare physician fee schedule cuts, the Radiation Oncology Case Rate Program (ROCR), site neutral payment reform, and the inability of medically integrated dispensing (MID) home delivery of prescriptions to patients.

Congressman Tonko is a senior member on the House Committee on Energy & Commerce serving his eighth term and serves as the Ranking Member of the Subcommittee on Environment, Manufacturing, & Critical Materials.  The Network and NYOH look forward to continue working with Congressman Tonko as we look to address several of our legislative priorities.
