CMMI Director Finds Mixed Results for Bundled Payments, Gives High Marks to Global Budgets
Value-based care payment models that focused on a global budget were home runs in a recent Trump administration review, but bundled payment results were more mixed.
Brad Smith, the head of the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation (CMMI) that oversees value-based care payment models, gave during the National Association of Accountable Care Organizations' fall conference Tuesday details of the agency’s review of the performance of every model.
Some of the winners were ones that had a “clear thesis” about quality and cost improvements, Smith said.He pointed to Maryland’s Total Cost of Care model as an example. The model sets a per capita limit on Medicare costs in the state.
