Updated Radiation Oncology Model FAQs

 Friday, October 9, 2020

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) this week released an updated FAQ document on the five-year bundled payment model for radiation oncology. Participants in the radiation oncology model will receive a bundled payment for 90-day episodes of radiation therapy for 16 disease sites, including breast, lung, prostate and colorectal cancer.

The project was described in a final rule released last month and begins Jan. 1 with mandatory participation in certain areas of the country.  For more information, visit the CMS model webpage.
