On November 1, 2019, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Innovation Center released details of a proposed alternative payment model for medical oncology care, called Oncology Care First (OCF), for public comment.1 The OCF model will succeed the Oncology Care Model (OCM), which will expire at the end of 2020. When it started in 2016, the OCM, which was voluntary, was important in oncology due to its emphasis on value-based care transformation.
