This needs to be a law ASAP

Woah...the government actually creating a law that HELPS people and defends them against greedy insurance companies?!?!

This law is extremely important for people in the fight against cancer, cancer has impacted everyone on this planet in one way or another, and early detection is key. If you can get screenings and tests done for as little as $50 there is no reason why you wouldn't do it if your family has a strong history of cancer. My family has a strong history of cancer and I would love to be able to get tests done and max pay $50 for them.
