Coverage & Reimbursement

ASCO has been very engaged in coverage and reimbursement issues facing oncologists. The Society developed a Physician Payment Reform model designed to improve the quality and affordability of care for patients with cancer. ASCO also released an "ASCO Policy Statement on Medicaid Reform" and provides resources for the interpretation, evaluation, and application process for oncology providers contemplating their participation in the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (CMMI) Oncology Care Model (OCM).
