RO Model Seminar

Please note - The RO Model webinar has been canceled until after the issuance of the final rule.

Earlier this summer, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Innovation Center (CMMI) unveiled an alternative payment model for radiation oncology. The final rule describing the requirements associated with the "RO Model" are expected to be released in November. The model represents a significant shift in payment policy for the field of radiation oncology and while ASTRO believes that the field is well positioned to succeed under these new payment models there will be significant challenges associated with implementation.

This seminar/webinar will help members of the radiation oncology community understand how the RO Model affects their practices and patient care. ASTRO physician volunteers and staff will share details regarding the RO Model construct and provide comprehensive insight regarding practice preparation for model implementation.

Seminar and Webinar attendees will learn about key aspects of the RO Model, including:

  • RO Model overview
  • Who's in, who's out: Participation requirements and exemptions
  • Cancer types, episode lengths and triggers
  • Included services and modalities
  • Payment methodology
  • Impact on different practice types
  • Tools for successful implementation
