Sequestration Cuts

The sequester is a series of across-the-board budget reductions that Congress allowed to go into effect when it could not agree on a spending plan earlier this year. An unexpected consequence of the sequester’s cut to Medicare, cancer clinics are finding that they cannot afford to continue administering some much needed chemotherapy drugs.
