MedicalResearch.com Interview with:
Nina Niu Sanford, M.D.
UT Southwestern Department of Radiation Oncology
Dallas TX 75390MedicalResearch.com: What is the background for this study? What are the main findings?Response: The background for this study is that we know cancer survivors are at risk for uninsurance or underinsurance and the most commonly cited reason for this is cost of insurance. However, there have been no prior studies assessing from the patient perspective the reasons for not having insurance.
In addition, there has been further recent controversy over the Affordable Care Act, including threats from the current administration to dismantle it. Thus assessing the impact of the ACA among at risk populations including cancer survivors is timely.
