The COA Payer Exchange Summit on Oncology Payment Reform series is dedicated to advancing payment reform in cancer care. Held twice a year, the Summit series brings together community oncology practices, local and national health insurers, employers, employer coalitions, policymakers, and more, to share ideas that will make payment reform a reality.
The goal of the Payer Exchange Summit series is to enable networking and idea sharing for how patients with cancer can receive high quality and cost-efficient care. We want to better share what is – and is not – working with oncology payment reform efforts and what can be done to help those efforts succeed.
Since the first Payer Exchange Summit held in 2014, numerous oncology payment reform initiatives have become a reality in both the public (Medicare) and private sectors, including the successfully completed COME HOME project. Today the primary focus of the oncology community is on successful implementation of the Oncology Care Model (OCM), and attempts to align Medicare, private payers, and providers in one national model.
