On May 3, 2017, the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation held a public listening session regarding the development of a report to Congress on an alternative payment model for radiation therapy services. The listening session provided an opportunity for all stakeholders to provide input on the report.
The Patient Access and Medicare Protection Act (P.L. 114-115) requires the Secretary of Health and Human Services to submit a report to Congress on an “episodic alternative payment model” for radiation therapy services furnished in “non-facility settings”.
The slide presentation is available here.
