On July 25, 2016, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) introduced its latest effort to increase financial accountability for Medicare patients by introducing mandatory bundled payments for a variety of cardiovascular services.  This expansion,  along with major joint replacement bundles, now represent two of Medicare’s biggest contributors to increasing costs while also representing two of the provider’s largest contributors to margin.

Join this Webcast to learn more about CMS’s mandatory payment bundles and how to design a strategy to address them. Featured speakers are KPMG LLP healthcare professionals Larry Burnett, Principal; and James Case, Director. Attendees will come away with a better understanding of how to:

  • Interpret the significant portions of CMS’s rules for comprehensive joint replacement services and proposed rules for cardiac bundle payments
  • Analyze, plan, and implement strategies to maintain or enhance future margins for these Medicare patients
  • Understand the capabilities providers will need to create a sustainable competitive advantage in their markets.

The Webcast will last approximately 60 minutes, including a question-and-answer session.
