Get Involved in the Treatment Options Initiative

The Treatment Options initiative—with targeted efforts to reach both consumers and health professionals—was developed with input from partner organizations across the United States, representing physicians, nurses, pharmacists, patients, consumer advocates, caregivers, and many others who support the EHC Program’s goals.

Treatment Options offers materials and tools for organizations to help individuals and communities become more engaged and prepared to make decisions about their health care.
