COA contends that the ongoing closures of independent oncology clinics, which are said to provide the majority of cancer care in the United States, not only affects patient access but drives up the costs of care, including for Medicare, because oncology treatment is more costly in hospital centers than in private clinics.

“Closing community treatment facilities creates access problems, and consolidation into more expensive hospital systems drives up costs for seniors with limited mobility and fixed incomes,” COA stated.
