HHS meets 2016 goal of shifting Medicare payments to alternative models
By Admin | March 16, 2016
Health and Human Services (HHS) has made a move that will help initiate a better healthcare delivery system and more sensibly spend healthcare dollars by making 30 percent of all Medicare provider payments fall under an alternative model.
Originally set for the end of 2016, they reached their objective 10 months ahead of schedule. Care organizations, bundled payments and patient-centered medical homes are included in these payments.
CMS also estimates that $117 billion in Medicare fee-for-service payments are linked to alternative payment models.
