medicare reimbursement

Generating revenue potential within the new models of Medicare reimbursement.

The Bundled Payments for Care Improvement (BPCI) initiative is changing the way healthcare organizations qualify for Medicare reimbursement – and helping to transform the healthcare industry as a whole.

Introduced by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) in 2013, the bundled payment program provides Medicare reimbursement based on the quality of care that providers furnish to patients, rather than the volume of services delivered. This new CMS bundled payment model is designed to increase collaboration, care coordination and communication among providers, especially in the post-acute care setting, ultimately improving patient outcomes, reducing waste and lowering the overall cost of providing care.

Qualifying for Medicare reimbursement under the bundled payment system requires expertise and technology resources that many healthcare organizations don’t necessarily have on staff or in-house. To support their efforts, hospitals and health systems can choose to work with a convener – an organization qualified to provide the capabilities and expertise required to better manage episodes of care while sharing risk with their provider partners.

When seeking a convener to help navigate this fundamental change in Medicare reimbursement, more organizations today turn to services and solutions from naviHealth.
