The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services will extend through 2025 the Bundled Payments for Care Improvement Advanced model, which was set to expire this year. CMS launched the alternative payment model in 2018 to test whether bundling Medicare payments for certain inpatient and outpatient care reduces spending and improves quality. The agency expects early next year to request applications from Medicare providers, suppliers and accountable care organizations to participate in the two-year extension, which will include changes to the pricing methodology.
