Mandatory Radiation Oncology and ESRD Models Announced

July 16, 2019


The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) released a proposed rule announcing two new mandatory Medicare payment models: the Radiation Oncology model and the ESRD Treatment Choices Model. The Radiation Oncology Model intends to address differences in payment amounts across sites of service for 17 types of cancer. It is projected to begin in 2020 and run through 2024. The ESRD Treatment Choices Model is focused on encouraging greater use of home dialysis and transplants for beneficiaries with end-stage renal disease. The model is projected to begin in January 2020 and run through 2026.
