Welcome Maryland and D.C. Society of Clinical Oncology Members to our newly established social media website. The purpose of the website is to encourage communication among the MDCSCO membership on topics that are of interest and importance to our members.
The mission of the Maryland and District of Columbia Society of Clinical Oncology (MDCSCO) is to improve the quality and delivery of care of medical oncology in Maryland and the District of Columbia, to educate public government and insurance carriers about appropriate prevention of cancer and current therapeutic options for our patients with cancer and to promote appropriate standards of the care of oncology including participation in cancer research.
MDCSCO is undergoing a reorganization to improve our effectiveness. This will include the development of the Practice Committee, the Advocacy Policy Committee and the Program Committee. The Practice Committee is centered around issues related to access to care, for advocacy with regard to Medicare and Medicaid as well as other insurance carriers. The primary focus of this committee is to provide care for all patients for appropriate oncology services as well as reimbursement for these services.
We look forward to increased member participation as well as ideas on new initiatives to make our organization relevant and interesting.
