HB1592 has been signed into law by Governor Asa Hutchinson, according to the Susan G. Komen Ozark affiliate.

The bill, now Act 543, requires parity in health benefit coverage between rally administered anti-cancer medications and IV administered anti-cancer medications. The bill was sponsored by Rep. Greg Leding.

Komen Ozark has been an advocate for access to oral anti-cancer treatments for Arkansans with cancer.
