Choosing Wisely – BPCI-A Episode Selection Due August 8

Bundled Payments for Care Improvement – Advanced (BPCI-A) is the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation’s (CMMI) latest voluntary alternative payment model (APM), and it is garnering a great deal of attention.

Applicants now have until August 8, 2018, to select the episodes of care for which they will accept a bundled payment, using pricing information and claims data furnished by CMMI.

PYA has published a new briefing, Choosing Wisely – BPCI-A Episode Selection Due August 8, that provides insight into using data (quantitative elements) and qualitative measures, combined with key considerations, to help applicants choose appropriate episodes.

For those organizations that have not applied, it also serves as an update regarding this new APM. The briefing additionally highlights PYA’s capabilities to assist our clients with quantitative and qualitative decision-making.

To discuss how our quantitative and qualitative approach can help you with BPCI-A episode selection, contact Martie Ross (mross@pyapc.com), Jason Hardin (jhardin@pyapc.com), or Aaron Elias (aelias@pyapc.com) at (800) 270-9629.
