This study will examine how Washington state’s oral chemotherapy parity law has affected access to chemotherapy, spending, out-of-pocket costs and health outcomes. Findings will be shared with regional stakeholders and are expected to be broadly applicable to the 42 other states with similar laws and to inform debate over federal legislation.
