Advisor Live Webinar: CMS’s Kidney Care and Radiation Oncology Payment Models – Premier’s Comment Letter on the Mandatory Programs

On July 10, CMS announced two new mandatory alternative payment models, the End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) Treatment Choices (ETC) and Radiation Oncology (RO) models. The ETC and RO models would include a proposed 50 percent and 40 percent, respectively, of Medicare beneficiaries receiving medical services included in the models.

These models will directly impact included providers (hospital outpatient departments, radiation oncologists, freestanding radiation oncology clinics, nephrologists, etc.) located in geographic areas mandated to participate, as well as providers operating in an alternative payment model that includes affected beneficiaries.

Watch this on-demand Advisor Live to review Premier’s comments to CMS on the ETC and RO models and learn more about recommended modifications and areas for feedback to CMS leading up to the comment deadline of September 16.
