  • Michael Hassett, MD, MPH, describes some of the issues raised about the costs of cancer care during a panel discussion at the 2011 San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium, including current approaches to controlling costs; the ethical conflicts doctors face when patients need a treatment not covered by insurance; whether cost-effectiveness analysis is a useful tool; and how the costs of care are perceived by doctors, patients, insurance companies, and the government.
