PCOP Delivers Multi-Payer Payment Reform Model That Improves Cancer Care Delivery and Reduces Costs, ASCO Tells CMS
ASCO recently submitted comments to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (CMS) Request for Information on its conceptualized Oncology Care First payment model and recommended that the agency also adopt the society’s updated Patient-Centered Oncology Payment (PCOP) model in order to improve care delivery and lowers costs.
“Through the framework laid out in the PCOP model, we believe CMS can achieve its goal of a truly multi-payer model that improves care delivery and reduces costs,” said ASCO President Howard A. "Skip" Burris, III, MD, FACP, FASCO.
