Alliance Responds to Proposed CMS Alternative Payment Model

By proton-admin | September 20, 2019

Earlier this week, the Alliance submitted a formal comment to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) on a newly proposed Radiation Oncology Model (RO Model). 

In our letter to CMS, we share our significant concerns related to the proposed RO Model. We ask the agency to consider excluding proton therapy from the RO Model, or short of that, to change the model in ways that will not drastically limit patient access to life-saving proton therapy.

Below you can read the Alliance’s full letter to CMS.
