A new Radiation Oncology Alternative Payment model is slated to begin for some providers Jan. 1, 2022. The model will impact every facet of radiation oncology. This presentation summarizes the very complex model and highlights the most significant aspects, enabling dosimetrists to explain why HHS was instructed to develop an episodic alternative payment model for radiotherapy (RT) services, predict how dosimetric planning and workflows will be impacted by the model and locate CMS resources to learn if your facility is included in the model and keep abreast of updates as they develop.
