INTRODUCTION: This analysis evaluates the impact of bundling drug costs into a hypothetic bundled payment. METHODS: An economic model was created for patient vignettes from: advanced-stage III colon cancer and metastatic non-small-cell lung cancer. First quarter 2016 Medicare reimbursement rates were used to calculate the average fee-for-service (FFS) reimbursement for these vignettes. The probabilistic risk faced by practices was captured by the type of patients seen in practices and randomly assigned in a Monte Carlo simulation on the basis of the given distribution of patient types within each cancer...

BACKGROUND: To help slow the rising costs associated with total joint arthroplasty (TJA), the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services introduced the Bundled Payments for Care Improvement (BPCI) initiative. The purpose of this study is to report our 1-year experience with BPCI in our 2 arthroplasty surgeon private practice. METHODS: In this series, a historical baseline group is compared with our first year under BPCI. We reviewed the cohorts with respect to hospital length of stay (LOS), readmission rates, discharge disposition, postacute care LOS, and overall savings on a per episode basis...

OBJECTIVES: Institutions participating in the Medicare Bundled Payments for Care Improvement (BPCI) initiative invest significantly in efforts to reduce readmissions and costs for patients who are included in the program. Eligibility for the BPCI initiative is determined by diagnosis-related group (DRG) classification. The implications of this methodology for chronic diseases are not known. We hypothesized that patients included in a BPCI initiative for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) would have less severe illness and decreased hospital utilization compared with those excluded from the bundled payment initiative...

Medicare bundled payment models have focused on post-acute care as a key component of improving the efficiency and quality of health care. This study investigated the characteristics and baseline performance of skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) that participated in Medicare Bundled Payments for Care Improvement Initiative Model 3. As of July 2016, 657 SNFs participated in 7,932 episodes in risk-bearing phase. Our retrospective analyses found that larger facilities, higher occupancy rate, chain affiliation, better five-star overall rating, and higher market competition for SNF care were associated with increased likelihood of enrolling in clinical episodes in Model 3, whereas not-for-profit ownership, higher adjusted staffing levels, higher percentage of Medicaid residents, and rural location were associated with reduced likelihood of participation in Bundled Payments for Care Improvement...

OBJECTIVES: ASAM's Standards of Care for the Addiction Specialist established appropriate care for the treatment of substance use disorders. ASAM identified three high priority performance measures for specification and testing for feasibility in various systems using administrative claims: use of pharmacotherapy for alcohol use disorder (AUD); use of pharmacotherapy for opioid use disorder (OUD); and continuity of care after withdrawal management services. This study adds to the initial testing of these measures in the Veteran's Health Administration (VHA) by testing the feasibility of specifications in commercial insurance data (Cigna)...

Medicare's new bundled payments program is expected to be popular, despite unanswered questions about the target prices for the episodes, risk adjustment, and use of quality data. Until CMS releases more detail on pricing targets and other not-so-trivial nuances, providers who jump in may be taking a leap of faith.

BACKGROUND CONTEXT: Adult spinal deformity surgery (ASD) is associated with significant resource utilization, costing more than $958 million in charges for Medicare patients and over $1.7 billion in charges for managed care population in the last decade. Given the recent move towards bundled payment models, it is important to understand the various care components a patient receives over the course of a defined clinical episode, its associated cost, and the proportion of cost for each component towards the bundled payment...

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has initiated bundled payments for hip and knee total joint replacement in an effort to decrease healthcare costs and increase quality of care. The ethical implications of this program have not been studied. This article considers the ethics of patient selection to improve outcomes; specifically, screening patients by body mass index to determine eligibility for total joint replacement. I argue that this type of screening is not ethically defensible, and that the bundled payment program as structured is likely to lead to unfair restrictions on who receives total joint replacements...

BACKGROUND: Use of large clinical and administrative databases for orthopaedic research has increased exponentially. Each database represents unique patient populations and varies in their methodology of data acquisition, which makes it possible that similar research questions posed to different databases might result in answers that differ in important ways. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: (1) What are the differences in reported demographics, comorbidities, and complications for patients undergoing primary TKA among four databases commonly used in orthopaedic research? (2) How does the difference in reported complication rates vary depending on whether only inpatient data or 30-day postoperative data are analyzed? METHODS: Patients who underwent primary TKA during 2010 to 2012 were identified within the National Surgical Quality Improvement Programs (NSQIP), the Nationwide Inpatient Sample (NIS), the Medicare Standard Analytic Files (MED), and the Humana Administrative Claims database (HAC)...

Life-saving technology used to treat catastrophic illnesses such as heart disease and cancer is often out of reach for the poor. As life expectancy increases in poor countries and the burden from chronic illnesses continues to rise, so will the unmet need for expensive tertiary care. Understanding how best to increase access to and reduce the financial burden of expensive tertiary care is a crucial task for the global health community in the coming decades. In 2010, Karnataka, a state in India, rolled out the Vajpayee Arogyashree scheme (VAS), a social health insurance scheme focused on increasing access to tertiary care for households below the poverty line...

In an effort to rein in expenditures and improve quality of care, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has initiated bundled reimbursement programs for total joint arthroplasty (TJA) procedures. The success of CMS's bundled payment models has prompted some private insurers to collaborate with provider organizations to institute similar bundled contracts for TJA. The authors review the experiences of orthopedic groups in the implementation of bundled payments for primary and revision TJA through both public and private payers...

In the face of escalating costs and variations in quality of care, bundled payment models for total joint arthroplasty procedures are becoming increasingly common, both through the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services and private payer organizations. The effective implementation of these payment models requires cooperation between multiple service providers to ensure economic viability without deterioration in care quality. This article introduces a stepwise model for the financial analysis of bundled contracts for use in negotiations between hospitals and private payer organizations...

BACKGROUND: The U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has been considering the implementation of a mandatory bundled payment program, the Surgical Hip and Femur Fracture Treatment (SHFFT) model. However, bundled payments without appropriate risk adjustment may be inequitable to providers and may restrict access to care for certain patients. The SHFFT proposal includes adjustment using the Diagnosis-Related Group (DRG) and geographic location. The goal of the current study was to identify and quantify patient factors that could improve risk adjustment for SHFFT bundled payments...
