Fixing healthcare through payment reform

The Changing Risk Landscape

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) recently announced its goal to have 100% of Medicare providers in an upside and downside risk arrangement by 2025. Now, more than ever, providers are on the hook for the quality and cost of healthcare.

Stay ahead of CMS with value-based payment and bundled payment programs.

Last Chance for BPCI Advanced

BPCI Advanced is the next generation of the original Bundled Payments for Care Improvement (BPCI) initiative created by Medicare, and a further progression of the value-based healthcare movement. BPCI Advanced qualifies as an Advanced Alternative Payment Model (Advanced APM) under the MACRA Quality Payment Program.

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has opened the application window for the second, and last, BPCI Advanced cohort, which will run through June 24, 2019. The second cohort will begin the program on January 1, 2020.

MedAxiom and Archway have partnered to support your organization’s participation in risk-based programs in a way that works for you. Learn more about the program here.
