The US Oncology Network Welcomes the 118th Congress

During the week of January 23, The US Oncology Network Federal Government Relations team returned to the fully re-opened House office buildings on Capitol Hill to meet with Members of the 118th Congress. The team met with Members and staff from nearly two dozen freshman and sophomore offices, as well as newly appointed members of the House Ways & Means and Energy & Commerce Committees. The team prioritized Members with a Network practice presence in their district, taking the opportunity to introduce the office to the practice and highlight our legislative priorities for the upcoming year.

Discussions were focused on The Network’s leadership in value-based care and alternative payment models as well as factors driving consolidation in community oncology, such as site-of-service payment differentials, and the critical need for pharmacy benefit manager oversight. The Network encouraged Members of Congress and staff to utilize the team and our members as a resource, as they begin their legislative work this Congress.
