Since July 2016, more than 180 practices entered into the Oncology Care Model (OCM), an APM with Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) that provides practices and the opportunity to receive performance-based payments for episodes of care surrounding chemotherapy administration to Medicare beneficiaries with cancer. Dr. Nancy Keating will discuss how OCM focuses on 6-month episodes of care for fee-for-service Medicare beneficiaries with cancer, which are triggered by the administration of anti-cancer therapy.
