FAH President and CEO Chip Kahn issued the following statement after HHS announced today that it was delaying and seeking comment on the implementation of the mandatory cardiac bundle program as well as the expansion of the current mandatory joint replacement bundle program:
“We so appreciate Secretary Price’s decision to delay these bundled payment programs and welcome a fresh set of eyes on these policies. Taking the time to get the policy right is what is most important.
“We support efforts to test and evaluate innovations in care delivery and payment. However, the impact of these policies on our patients is paramount and we look forward to working with the new leadership at HHS and CMS as they consider them further.”
