The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) will host a webinar to discuss the agency’s recently finalized new episode payment models for cardiac care and surgical treatment for hip and femur fractures.
The rule — released Dec. 20, 2016 — also updated the Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement model, allowing it to qualify as an advanced alternative payment model under the new Quality Payment Program. The first performance year of the payment models will begin July 1.
The 60-minute webinar will begin at noon ET on Feb. 9.
