CMS to Host Webinar on CCJR Model Final Rule
Webinars to be held Nov. 19 & 30

Yesterday the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) issued its final rule implementing the Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement model, set to begin April 1, 2016. Acute care hospitals in certain selected geographic areas, including three in California, will receive retrospective bundled payments for episodes of care for hip and knee replacements. The CMS Innovation Center will host a webinar, offered on two dates, to describe the final rule and respond to questions. Online registration for the Nov. 19 and Nov. 30 webinars is now available. CMS urges early registration, as large audiences are expected.
