Advocate CAPU!
  • HR1903, the Post Prostate Cancer Treatment Equity Act
    • Unfortunately, it is becoming common for private insurance companies to deny post-surgical, reconstructive care for prostate cancer survivors. CAPU has been working to ensure that patients who will benefit from an implantable prosthetic device have access to this therapy.

      One way to ensure that patients are provided this important benefit is to establish a mandate at the federal level, similar to the mandate that was established by women who are breast cancer survivors and require reconstructive surgery post mastectomy.

      HR1903, the Post Prostate Cancer Treatment Equity Act, requires insurance companies to provide prosthetic urology procedures.
