TACOS Urges CMS to Withdraw Part B Drug Payment Model From Consideration

As many of you know, in early March, CMS proposed a program that would have a detrimental impact on our ability to provide high quality cancer care to our patients. The Medicare Part B Drug Payment Model proposes a sweeping change to Part B reimbursement, and may be implemented as early as this fall.

The state society recently sent a letter on behalf of members to our elected officials to oppose CMS’ ill-conceived proposal.
