Application Cost

QOPI is an ASCO member benefit with free participation to all outpatient practices with at least one ASCO member in good standing. For QOPI Certification, cost is determined by the medical oncology and hematologist clinical FTEs* at a participating practice. Additionally, the fee is calculated based on the number of practice locations that administer chemotherapy. In certain cases, an additional fee covering the on-site survey may be applied depending on number of infusion suites, distance between sites, as well as patient volume. 

*FTE = Full Time Equivalent - defined as the proportion of time a medical oncologist or hematologist provides clinical care relative to a full time schedule

Situational expenses for large, multi-site practices

A large, multi-site practice may submit a single Certification application where each site of the practice is located within a geographic distance of 250 road miles from at least one other site of the practice, as measured by the shortest route between such sites. 

For practices that have one or more sites that are located more than 250 road miles from the next closest site, QCP may divide the practice into regions. The practice will consult QCP regarding the appropriate manner of applying for QCP, but QCP has the sole discretion to establish the geographic regions.
