Value-Based Payment Models in Oncology: Deloitte Research on Impact of New Payment Models
Value-Based Payment Models in Oncology: Deloitte Research on Impact of New Payment Models
The costs of treating cancer are rising - approximately $124.6 billion in 2010 in the United States and projected to grow to $158 billion to $173 billion by 2020. Today, many health plans, health systems, and oncology groups have begun experimenting with value-based payment models to control rising costs, reduce unexplained variation in care, and improve patient outcomes. Four value-based payment models are being tested in the commercial market: (1) Financial incentives for adhering to clinical pathways; (2) Patient-centered medical homes (PCMHs); (3) Bundled payments; and (4) Specialty accountable care organizations (ACOs). In addition, CMS recently launched the Oncology Care Model (OCM), a 2-part payment system, resembling a PCMH and a bundled payment model. Many of these models target drug spending.

The Deloitte Center for Health Solutions recently interviewed stakeholders from health plans, provider groups, and clinical pathway developers that are participating, supporting, or evaluating oncology payment models to understand what approaches are perceived to be working, and what the early results (financial and clinical) have been. They also sought to understand how these payment models affect the use of new treatments.

With rapid advances in diagnostics, precision medicine, and immunotherapy, how can a standardized payment model be defined that leaves room for innovation? Deloitte research reveals that many organizations are experimenting with value- based payment models that aim to balance the competing goals of controlling costs and allowing access to advances in treatment. While none of the participating organizations claimed to have solved this equation, all of them indicated that they had seen early signs of success and were working to evolve and expand these models.
