The Planning Actively for Cancer Treatment (PACT) Act:
Providing Cancer Patients a Plan for Treatment and Survivorship
The Planning Actively for Cancer Treatment (PACT) Act will encourage the development of a personalized cancer care plan for Medicare beneficiaries.
The PACT Act will:
- Help cancer patients through the difficult process of cancer diagnosis, treatment choices, treatment management, and survivorship care by supplying them a written plan or roadmap.
- Encourage a shared decision-making process between patients and their cancer care teams.
- Support informed decision-making as treatment choices are becoming increasingly complex.
- Empower the patient with tools to manage care from active treatment through long-term survivorship.

How Can I Help?
Members of Congress need to hear from their constituents that cancer care planning is a priority. There are two simple ways you can get in touch with your elected officials and to make your voice heard: write your representative or call your representative.
