  • The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) announced that a new payment model targeted at improving Medicare cancer care will begin in mid-2023. The “Enhancing Oncology Model” will be a voluntary program that builds off the Oncology Care Model, which will end Thursday after six years. The new model will offer two risk arrangements, both of which will require participants to take on some downside risk. The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation will launch the new model on July 1, 2023, for a five-year test period. (Press release here; Articles here and here)
