Affordable Care Act (ACA) & Cancer Team

UPDATED April 3, 2017

KCC's ACA and Cancer Team has recently developed new tools that are designed to support caregivers of those with cancer in finding answers on where to get help in paying for cancer treatment and care for their loved ones.

Many thanks to the ACA & Cancer Team for their efforts in updating information related to the summary of cancer prevention and screening benefits in Kentucky. Please share these documents widely with your networks.

The ACA and Cancer Team is focused on understanding and communicating the impact of ACA on cancer prevention and early detection in Kentucky. The primary audiences are KCC partner organizations, health professionals and the public.

The ACA and Cancer Team has compiled existing information and resources available from other organizations (see below) on the Affordable Care Act and Cancer.
