Cancer Care Specialists of Illinois has been chosen by the Center for Medicare Services to participate in the Oncology Care Model (OCM), a pilot program for cancer patients. Cancer Care Specialists takes pride in delivering the highest quality care to every patient. The OCM assists patients in the coordination and delivery of care by providing patient navigation services and programs like the Call Us First campaign. We desire to align with the OCM’s goals in streamlining patient care and making it as affordable as possible while keeping the unique perspective of every patient in mind. OCM was specifically developed by CMS for Medicare beneficiary patients but the services and advantages of the program undoubtedly extend to all of our patients as they navigate through the cancer experience. For more information on the OCM or the programs associated with the OCM at Cancer Care Specialists, ask your nurse, doctor or contact the program manager, Stephanie Jackson, at (217) 342-2066.
