BUNDLED PAYMENTS
Under health reform, hospitals and physicians need to be ready for bundled payment methodologies. Bundling payments is CMS’s preferred payment methodology and appeals to payers in general because of its transparency, elimination of variances, shifting of risk, and manner in which it aligns hospital and physician incentives. TRG can ensure your preparedness for both Medicare and non-Medicare bundled payments and help you gain market share by developing a bundled price proposal. We have successfully marketed bundled payments to self-funded corporations, managed care networks and Medicare.
