Enhancing Oncology Model

Enhancing Oncology Model

Virginia Oncology Associates is a proud community leader committed to providing all groups of people state-of-the-art medical care with respect, dignity, and equitable treatment.

As part of this commitment, your healthcare team may ask you questions regarding sex assigned at birth, sexual orientation, and gender identity.

Your responses allow your healthcare team to:

  • Support you in your individual healthcare journey.
  • Help address health inequities in the communities we serve.
  • Promote positive change for all patients and community members.

Your responses to these questions, like the rest of your health information, are confidential and protected by law. As a patient, you can choose not to provide this information.

If you have questions, please speak with your healthcare provider.

The Medicare & Medicaid Innovation Center and Our Practice are committed to reducing health disparities and achieving health equity. We are gathering this information to ensure all patients have access to quality care, clinical trials, and individualized care plans.
