CMS’ Introduction of BPCI Advanced Model a Step in the Right Direction
JANUARY 10, 2018 BY NATIONAL COALITION ON HEALTH CARE
Statement by National Coalition on Health Care President and CEO John Rother on CMS’ introduction of the new Bundled Payment Care Improvement advanced model
“NCHC is encouraged by CMS’ introduction of the new Bundled Payment Care Improvement (BPCI) advanced model. This is an important step forward and is evidence of CMS’ commitment, under the leadership of Seema Verma, to advance delivery innovation in the Medicare program.
“NCHC has consistently supported alternative payment model policies in order to transform health care into a delivery system that benefits providers, payers, and consumers while reducing costs and improving outcomes. A voluntary episodic bundling program is an important element in the transition from volume to value. We look forward to continuing the conversation on value-based care with Congress and the Administration moving forward in 2018.”
