On January 9, 2018, CMS announced the launch of a new bundled payment model called Bundled Payments for Care Improvement Advanced (BPCI Advanced), setting a deadline of March 12th for organizations to opt-in to the voluntary bundle model. This provides a significant opportunity for your organization to improve financial performance by increasing the focus on improving quality and reducing costs. Under this bundled payment model, participants can earn additional payment if all costs for a beneficiary’s episode of care are under a spending target and achieve quality standards.
BPCI Advanced Participants may receive payments on 32 different clinical episodes, such as major joint replacement of the lower extremity (inpatient) and percutaneous coronary intervention (inpatient or outpatient). An episode model such as BPCI Advanced supports healthcare providers who invest in practice innovation and care redesign to improve quality and reduce cost.
