There’s a little-known group out there that just made several disappointing recommendations for all those living with prostate cancer. Sadly, it could mean the difference between life or death for many.
As the nonprofit organization whose mission is educating and advocating on behalf of men, boys and their families to enhance overall long-term health and wellness, Men’s Health Network believes it is in the best interest of our constituents to provide perspective on these upcoming guidelines.
The organization releasing these economic models to assess prostate cancer treatment is the Institute for Clinical and Economic Review. This is a private, self-governing organization established in 2006 to make recommendations to health care insurers, physicians and others about the value of covering prescription drugs and other treatments across the entire health system continuum.
