Comprehensive Care Joint Replacement (CJR) Model

In 2014, more than 400,000 Medicare beneficiaries received a hip or knee replacement, costing more than $7 billion for the hospitalizations alone. Despite the high volume of these surgeries, quality and costs of care still vary greatly among providers. On April 1, 2016, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) finalized the Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement (CJR) model, which holds hospitals accountable for the quality of care they deliver to Medicare fee-for-service beneficiaries for hip and knee replacements and/or other major leg procedures, from surgery through recovery. CMS also has proposed to expand the program to include surgeries for hip and femur fractures. Through this payment model, hospitals in 67 geographic areas receive additional payments, if they meet a certain target price and quality metrics. If not, they potentially have to repay Medicare for a portion of the spending for care for the applicable episode. In this webinar, you will gain insight from physical therapists who are on the frontline of implementation, and who can share business and clinical tips on how to manage patient populations in the CJR model. In addition, you will learn the most up-to-date information on current trends in bundled payment and the impact on physical therapist practice.
