Episode #10 of the AAPM Medical Physics 3.0 Webinar Series on Transformational Medical Physics.
Speaker: Jonas Fontenot
Moderator: Ahmad Al-Basheer
Synopsis: Since 2014, CMS has explored potential ways to test an episode-based payment model for Radiation Oncology services. This has led to a new RO Model that changes the current fee-for-service to prospective, site neutral, modality agnostic, and episode-based payments. The Model, set to start on January 1, 2022, encompass 30% of eligible episodes in select geographic areas across the US for a five-year period. This webinar details this Model and explores its implications for medical physics services.
