Premier is pleased to provide a detailed summary of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) proposed Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement (CCJR) Model rule.
Premier held an Advisor Live® presentation on the proposed rule on Thursday, July 30. Watch a recording of the webinar here.
The regulation establishes a bundled payment model for acute care hospitals for joint replacement procedures. CMS proposes making the program mandatory for most hospitals in 75 geographic areas across the country. The new payment model is designed to promote quality and financial accountability for episodes of care (from admission to 90 days post-discharge) surrounding a lower-extremity joint replacement (LEJR) or reattachment of a lower extremity procedure (MS-DRG 469/470). CMS proposes to test the CCJR Model for a five-year performance period, beginning January 1, 2016, and ending December 31, 2020.
Premier plans to submit comments and expects to make them available to members prior to the September 8 CMS deadline.
