LANSING, MI (MPRN)-- Some health advocates want to raise the minimum age for tobacco purchases.
The American Cancer Society also wants changes to make pricing for cancer treatments fairer in Michigan.
Right now, insurance companies in Michigan can make cancer patients pay more out of pocket for oral chemotherapy drugs than they do for intravenous drugs.
Andrew Schepers is with the American Cancer Society.
“We want to level the playing field in all pharmaceutical treatment types in cancer patients,” he says.
