How ‘Home-to-Home Time’ Supports the Goals of Bundled Payments

Addressing the tendency of fee-for-service to promote more spending requires changing the metrics that motivate clinician behavior away from volume as a primary focus. The DRG system, an early example of bundled payment, represents an attempt to solve the problem by paying hospitals a set amount for each hospitalization. DRG-based reimbursement incentivizes hospitals to keep costs down by eliminating unnecessary services and by shortening length of stay (LOS). Indeed, in the 30 years following the introduction of the DRG system, average hospital LOS nearly halved, dropping from 10.0 days in 1983 to 5.1 days in 20131,2.

Medicare Underscores Its Focus on Voluntary Bundled Payment Models

According to a Proposed Rule released on August 10, Medicare's next iteration of voluntary bundled payments will be an Advanced APM in 2018, opening the door for robust participation. The Proposed Rule, if implemented in January 2018, would cancel the Mandatory Cardiac Episode Payment Models and make participation voluntary in the Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement model for half of selected Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs) and for low-volume and rural hospitals.

Bundled Payments and the Practice of Palliative Care

Palliative care improves quality of life by relieving symptoms, providing psycho-social support, and by lowering costs by eliminating unwanted inventions, such as hospital readmissions.1,2 Because bundled payments approach episodes of care with the patient’s goals at the center of all care planning, bundled payments can help make palliative care available to patients by offering incentives that help avoid expensive care that may be at odds with the patient’s wishes. Further, effective January 2016, CMS reimburses physicians for “advance care planning” activities that support palliative care as part of the updated Physician Fee Schedule under two new CPT codes.

Bundled Payments are Not Associated with an Increase in Elective Procedures

Two recent studies demonstrate that the number of elective procedures does not vary significantly in bundled payment programs when compared to controls. Wilson, de Brantes and Conway analyzed1 the Medicare Bundled Payments for Care Improvement initiative to determine if the volume of Lower Joint Replacement (LJR) procedures increased under the model.  Their analysis was in response to an editorial3 in the Journal of the American Medical Association that raised questions about elective procedure volume and bundled payments in an accompanying JAMA study.2

To help the Medicare program in this task, the Health Care Transformation Task Force released principles to consider when apportioning responsibility between alternative payment models covering the same patients.
