CMS Innovation Center seeks input on Oncology Care Model sequel

In a late-night announcement on Friday, 1 November, the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (CMMI) gave cancer providers the first look at a possible sequel to the Oncology Care Model (OCM).

CMMI first released an informal request for information (RFI) laying out the basic outline of a new "Oncology Care First" model (OCF), followed by a public listening session to gather feedback on the ongoing OCM and the proposed OCF sequel. CMMI envisions that OCF would begin in January 2021 and run through the end of 2025. The proposed OCF model would expand on the basic framework of OCM, notably by requiring all participating practices to take on two-sided risk by year three of the model and by bundling payment for certain services into a prospective monthly payment. Comments on the RFI are due by 25 November 2019.
