Each year, ASCO and the American Society of Hematology (ASH) host a Carrier Advisory Committee (CAC) Network Meeting. ASCO and ASH invite CAC representatives and CAC alternates from oncology and hematology, Medicare Contractor Medical Directors, and state oncology/hematology society representatives to attend the meeting. The meeting enables CAC representatives from across the country to meet and discuss issues related to their CAC role, share challenges, discuss Medicare coverage issues, and brainstorm on potential solutions. The purpose of the meeting is to strengthen communication and collaboration among CAC representatives.
ASCO and ASH are the hosts and sole sponsors of the CAC Network Meeting. There is neither industry sponsorship nor industry participation in the meeting. (ASCO and ASH divested this meeting of industry sponsorship and participation in 2008.)
The 2015 ASH/ASCO CAC Network Meeting was held at ASCO headquarters on July 9-10, 2015. The 2016 meeting is scheduled for July 21-22. Check back for more updates.
