Editor’s Note

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced that it is extending the deadline for its new alternative bundled payment model from August 1 to August 8, the July 5 Modern Healthcare reports.

CMS extended the deadline after receiving complaints from providers and hospitals that they weren’t given sufficient time to review their claims data before making a decision to participate.

Participants in the new Bundled Payments for Care Improvement Advanced model are expected to be announced in September, and the new model is expected to begin October 1.
