Another Chance with BPCI Advanced

BPCI Advanced is the next generation of the original Bundled Payments for Care Improvement (BPCI) initiative created by Medicare, and a further progression of the value-based healthcare movement.

BPCI Advanced qualifies as an Advanced Alternative Payment Model (Advanced APM) under the MACRA Quality Payment Program.

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services announced that it intends to open the application window for the second, and last, BPCI Advanced cohort in April 2019. The second cohort will begin the program on January 1, 2020.
