“We believe the RO Model, with significant modifications, could represent a meaningful and viable first step toward enabling the field of radiation oncology to participate in the evolving world of health care payment reform as initiated by MACRA,” said Harari. “We are committed to working with the Agency to modify the model in such a way that it meets the stated goals.”

ASTRO's recommendations are based on feedback of ASTRO members. Should CMS’ RO model be enacted, its initiation is projected to begin in Jan. or April 2020 and end in December 2024.
