ACCC Responds to CMMI RFI on Oncology Care First Model

On Dec. 12, 2019, the Association of Community Cancer Centers (ACCC) provided comments to the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation's informal Request for Information on its potential Oncology Care First Model. Applauding CMMI for making the OCF Model voluntary and envisioning a multi-payer model, ACCC urged CMMI to:

  • make significant changes to the risk tracks for purposes of performance-based payment episodes,

  • structure the prospective payment for care management and certain other services as a supplemental payment,

  • provide more detail on the methodology for the novel therapy adjustment and ensure that the final adjustment adequately accounts for the cost of innovative and often life-saving new therapies, and

  • provide more details and future opportunities to comment on the OCF before finalizing the Model.
