17 insurers sign on to test CMS' Oncology Care Model

AHIP Solutions SmartBrief | Jun 30, 2016

Seventeen private insurers will participate in the Oncology Care Model, a CMS bundled payment program that aims to reduce Medicare costs and improve patient outcomes, along with over 3,200 oncologists from about 200 medical groups. The payment model demo, which launches Friday and involves 155,000 Medicare patients, will enroll doctors in one-sided risk agreements for the first two years, then move to two-sided contracts in 2018 with higher reward potential but also penalties for high costs.
