Rep. Ramone had the privilege of participating in a bill signing ceremony recently for an important measure aimed at helping cancer patients seeking certain kinds of treatment.

Rep. Ramone is a lead sponsor of House Bill 120, which requires health insurance policies to cover any drug consistent with best practices for the treatment of stage 4 advanced, metastatic cancer without requiring a patient to first prove that they failed to respond to a different drug or drugs.

The new law is based on a similar bill in Georgia that was inspired by President Jimmy Carter's recent battle with cancer.
