Topic Background:

As the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services have transitioned to paying for value, rather than paying for volume, they have also challenged providers to be strategic in cutting costs. One aspect of cost cutting has been the focus of expecting a provider to align and collaboration with other care providers to decrease costs and improve quality outcomes. This cost cutting focus offered hospitals the opportunity to volunteer their involvement in having payments bundled to them—and in turn, using those bundled payments to reimburse others in the continuum for their part of care provision.

Under the CMS bundled payment model, CMS issues a lump sum, or a “bundled” payment, to the hospital delivering an episode of care during a specific time period. The bundled payment would then be distributed by the hospital to other care providers, which may include physicians, and post-acute care providers. Because a bundled payment is smaller than the sum of individual payments to providers, providers can succeed only by reducing costs and delivering a more efficient episode of care. While ensuring cost effective care, a second expectation of the bundled payment methodology is that quality care metrics are met.

CMS’s first and optional Bundled Payment for Care Improvement (BPCI) Initiative, aimed at increased coordination among providers treating Medicare beneficiaries. Following the optional bundled payment initiative was the mandatory bundled payment model, which included Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement (CJR) and began in 2016.

Other payers have now partnered with providers in similar bundled payment programs. Most recently the bundled payment program has been expanded to include many more optional diagnoses and procedures. This comprehensive approach to increased risk at the hospital level has required active involvement of case management departments to align with other hospital providers and post-acute care providers in providing quality and cost-effective care.
