Oral oncology medications have been stifled by high copays for cancer patients. After a hard battle fought by numerous patient organizations and partners the Oral Oncology Parity Act has passed and new legislation will take effect August 1, 2015. North Dakota became the 38th state with the District of Columbia to enact such legislation.
