New Enhancing Oncology Model

Date: September 13, 2022

Enhancing Oncology Model (EOM) Resources

June 27, the CMS Innovation Center (CMMI) announced the new Enhancing Oncology Model (EOM). EOM builds on insights from the Oncology Care Model (OCM) and intends to drive transformation in oncology care by enhancing the quality of care furnished to beneficiaries undergoing chemotherapy while reducing Medicare Fee for Service (FFS) spending. The model features a focus on equity, with an aim to increase participation and support for oncology practices working with traditionally underserved populations. Applications for the model are due from interested organizations by September 30, 2022. The model itself will launch in July 2023.

To support awareness and increase successful applications, the EOM team has developed resources to assist cancer care and payment stakeholders in understanding the policies and benefits of EOM. The EOM website has resources to answer questions and help PGPs and other payers prepare to submit an application.
