What is the emerging experience with Oncology Care Models (OCM) for commercial payers?

Well, we have 14 commercial payers that are a part of OCM. They follow basic guidelines, which is a care management fee and a value-based payment system. I think they are learning in their interactions with practices. You heard people say this morning that really making it more of a collaborative relationship rather than a conflict relationship is better. I think that practices have discovered, the commercial payers have discovered, that sharing data with our practices is very important because if you don’t have information you can’t improve your practice. I think that is what’s occurring and I think their experience with OCM or OCM-like programs have been positive.
