The Office of Disability Policy invites you to participate in an online IdeaScale forum sponsored by the Social Security Administration (SSA). The forum is now open for your comments! The discussion is on the topic of genetically targeted drug treatments for cancer, also known in the medical community as “precision medicine” or “molecularly informed” clinical trials.  We would like to solicit your feedback to help us further explore what effect, if any, such treatment may have on the Listing of Impairments for determining when cancer is disabling under the titles II and XVI disability programs. 

 

You can provide your comments on the IdeaScale Website until August 14, 2015.
