Cancer Care: New Frontiers in Delivery & Payment

September 08, 2017 | 09:30 AM
11:00 AM ET

The cost of cancer care is growing faster than costs in any other medical sector—and it's hitting patients hard. One study found that as many as 24 percent of cancer patients chose not to fill a prescription because of costs, and another 20 percent were taking less than the prescribed dose. While rapid scientific advances are increasing survival rates for many types of cancer, they're also increasing costs and adding complexity to treatment decisions.

This webinar explored:

  • State policies to prevent and fight cancer, including tobacco control measures and access to health coverage through Medicaid
  • The implications of cancer drug innovations for patients, payers and the FDA
  • How an oncology-specific accountable care organization in Florida is flattening the rate of cancer care cost growth
  • CMS’s episode-based Oncology Care Model, an ongoing pilot involving over a dozen payers and nearly 200 provider practices
  • Research-informed efforts to reduce use of cancer services that are low-benefit or even harmful
