Bundled Payments: Think Like a Payer as You Build and Negotiate Bundles

Presented on: Thursday, April 18, 2019 | 12:30–1:30 p.m. EST

Presented by: Penny Noyes, CEO and Founder of Health Business Navigators

With fee-for-service reimbursement shrinking and medical practice increasingly a pay-for-performance proposition, bundled services are emerging as a way to contain costs—and, for the bundler, a source of added revenue.

While in Medicare programs the bundler is usually the specialist (e.g., orthopedic surgeons in the CJR plan), commercial plans will often accept bundles created by any provider in the episode of care, so long as they can take charge, assess and accept risk, aim for best outcomes, and negotiate payment arrangements—in other words, so long as they think and act like a payer.

Join expert speaker Penny Noyes for this 60-minute webinar to educate your practice on preparing to take control of or participate in the bundling process, and on creating a profitable business line. Stay tuned at the end of the webinar for a live Q&A session!
