Appendix A Statement of Task A National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine planning committee will organize and host a 1.5-day public workshop to examine the impact of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) on cancer prevention and care (early detection, diagnosis, treatment, and survivorship). The workshop will feature invited presentations and panel discussions on ­topics that may include: • The effects of ACA provisions such as: o Coverage for certain preventive care services without patient cost sharing; o Prohibition of exclusions for preexisting conditions; o Coverage of children up to age 26 on a parent’s health insurance plan; and o State-based Medicaid expansions. • The impact of new organizational infrastructure (e.g., the Patient- Centered Outcomes Research Institute and the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation), and their relevance to cancer research. • The effects of payment reform demonstration projects (such as accountable care organizations and the oncology medical home pilot) on patient outcomes and the quality and efficiency of oncology care delivery; as well as the viability and sustainability of alternative payment models. • Remaining evidence gaps and policy challenges and their impact on patients with cancer. 45 PREPUBLICATION COPY—Uncorrected Proofs

The National Cancer Policy Forum of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine convened a virtual workshop in March 2021 to examine the existing evidence base on how the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) has altered the landscape of cancer prevention and care delivery in the United States. The workshop featured presentations and discussions reviewing the effects of the ACA on people at risk for or living with cancer and providing insight into remaining policy challenges that could inform future efforts to improve and support the delivery of high-quality cancer care across the care continuum. This publication provides a high-level summary of the discussions presented during the workshop.
