Learning, Inspiring, Sharing
This session will provide an update on the association’s current thinking and strategy regarding CMS’ various bundled payment programs. James Michel, AHCA's Senior Director, Medicare Reimbursement & Policy, will describe AHCA members’ early experience with the various bundled payment programs and how those experiences are informing ongoing work to advocate for bundled payment models that are workable for skilled nursing providers. Additionally, attendees will learn about the current policy landscape and what we know so far about how the new administration views bundled payment programs, what action policymakers could take in the short- and long-term, and the likely fate of ongoing demonstrations. Finally, AHCA’s current research effort to advance a PAC bundled payment proposal to CMS and an overview of the tools and resources available to AHCA members will be discussed.
