CMS expands mandatory bundling program to cardiac care, including rehab
from PT in Motion
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has announced the latest in its move toward value-based payment systems – this time through the introduction of a mandatory bundling program for care associated with bypass surgery and heart attacks, including provisions that would incentivize the use of cardiac rehabilitation. The demonstration plan announced by CMS would affect hospitals in 98 randomly selected metropolitan areas and would work much like the Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement model implemented this year.
