OCM Launch is Official
The Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation (CMMI) has officially activated the Oncology Care Model (OCM) program. OCM will commence as of July 1, 2016 for those oncology providers that have submitted an OCM agreement of participation as of June 10, 2016. OCM Practices include independent oncology medical groups as well as Practices that are in an affiliation relationship with hospitals/health systems.
Focus Shifts to OCM Onboarding
Now that the OCM sign-up phase is completed, the focus shifts to OCM onboarding and practice redesign implementation to which OCM Participants must certify by October 1, 2016.
In order to assist oncology providers in demystifying and implementing their OCM requirements, we are offering our OCM-911 implementation advisory and advocacy services.
