Special Episode: Bundled Payments and Value-based Care

Bundled payment programs are designed to promote value-based care and remain largely voluntary. With the deadline to renew or modify contracts rapidly approaching and Medicare’s acceleration towards mandatory models, a four-person panel with varying perspectives discusses whether linking payments to clinical episodes can reduce Medicare expenditures while maintaining or improving quality of care. Learn more about various alternative payment models created to achieve value-based care using AAOS' Value-Based Care Continuum guide.
