Contracting for Bundled PaymentJanuary 2012
Contracting for Bundled Payment is one of a series of Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services-authorized documents on certain key topics essential to preparation for bundled payment, or BP. The document focuses primarily on methods for defining contract contents unique to BP, such as those that flow from plans for care redesign, quality and performance measurement, data sharing requirements, and gain sharing agreements. Additional contract elements, such as dispute resolution or unwinding clauses, are essential, but not specific to BP. A competent contracting attorney may guide the construction of these clauses.
