The Ohio Hematology Oncology Society has several committees for members to participate. The committees provide expertise and guidance to the Society.
Off-Label Drug Committee
This committee is responsible for working with Medicare to review the potential off-label use of drugs to treat cancer and hematologic disorders.
Carrier Advisory Committee (CAC)
The Society is responsible for recommending an Oncologist and Hematologist to serve on Medicare's Carrier Advisory Committee (CAC). The CAC is responsible for providing advice to Medicare on proposed Local Medical Review Policies.
Ohio Legislative Cancer Caucus
With the support of Representative Jim Carmichael, the Society helped establish the Ohio Legislative Cancer Caucus. The Caucus works to educate legislators about the many issues surrounding cancer care. Those issues include new developments in cancer care, clinical research, quality of care and patient access to care. The caucus also works to advance state policies that further cancer care access; research; improve prevention, diagnosis and treatment; and enhance the quality of life for cancer patients. The Society is heavily involved in the Cancer Caucus.
