In February 2015, the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (CMMI) at CMS announced a new, voluntary program available to physician practices that administer chemotherapy to fee-for-service (FFS) Medicare beneficiaries. The Oncology Care Model (OCM) will focus on the total cost of care for cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy during a six-month episode and tie payments to performance based on meeting certain quality metrics and practice transformation requirements. The Oncology Care Model program will last for five years and is slated to begin in Spring 2016.
