A new analysis shows skilled nursing facilities make up two-thirds of providers participating in a bundled payment pilot program.
Research from Avalere shows that 1,755 providers will participate in “Phase 2” of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ Bundled Payments for Care Improvement Initiative. An estimated 1,350 providers entered the second phase of the initiative by the July 1 deadline imposed by CMS; of those providers, 896 are SNFs. The second largest group participating in the pilot is physician group practices, at 197 participants.
