CMS Extends Deadline for BPCI Advanced Model Participation

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has extended the deadline for submitting signed participation agreements and selecting clinical episodes for the Bundled Payments for Care Improvement (BPCI) Advanced model to August 8. The due date for deliverables to CMS is now Sept. 14. 

Last week, CHA sent a letter to CMS outlining concerns about the current timeline for participant agreements. CHA also urged CMS to offer two additional start dates in 2019 to maximize the number of participants in the model.
