Oncology Care Model Overview

CMS first announced the new, voluntary Oncology Care Model (OCM) program in February 2015. Physician practices that administer chemotherapy to fee-for-service (FFS) Medicare beneficiaries were eligible to apply for OCM participation. The OCM program focuses on the total cost of care for cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy during a six-month episode of treatment and ties payments to performance based on meeting certain quality metrics and practice transformation requirements.

OCM Collaborative Online Community

To support OCM practices, ACCC launched the OCM Collaborative virtual community to share tips, tools, and resources as providers navigate new transformational cancer care delivery and payment models. This is an invitation-only platform that provides a targeted discussion board and access to OCM-focused events including calls, webinars, and workshops. If your program is participating in the OCM and you have not received an invitation to join the ACCC OCM Collaborative, please fill out the form on the Collaborative Homepage to gain access to this peer-to-peer learning resource.
