CMS has now implemented its Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement Model, requiring hospitals, doctors, and other providers in 67 cities to accept bundled payments for reimbursement of hip and knee replacements. For the first time, this mandatory model is making hospitals financially responsible for the recovery of their patients from 90 days after hospital discharge. Panelists will examine how bundled payments are driving higher quality and more coordinated and efficient care between hospitals, physicians, and post-acute care providers, and they will look down the road at how stakeholders can apply the lessons learned as CMS accelerates its pace in the move toward episode-of-care payments.
