Susan G. Komen South Florida is so excited to remind you that on July 1, 2014 – Florida’s “Oral Parity Bill” officially went into effect throughout the state, making us one of about 25 states that now support this important cancer legislation.

All six of Florida’s Komen Affiliates have worked together for several years as the Florida Komen Public Policy Collaborative to ensure that patients would have access to their life-saving prescription drugs by prohibiting private insurance plans from charging higher out-of-pocket costs for oral medications than for IV-infused medications.
