The Emerging Payment Model in Spine Care
By Admin | June 01, 2016
It appears that providers open to adopting bundled payments are able to increase their patient volumes from payers seeking cost-effective care, according to a survey reported in Spine Journal.
In fact, organizations expected as much as 30 to 45% of their spine volume to be covered under bundled payments within the next three years, although most of the organizations questioned still garner the majority of their revenue with fee-for-service structures.
Those who received bundled payments cite new patient volume, increased surgical yield, and financial benefits from efficiency improvements.
