In Reply As Dr Bowman notes, in our Viewpoint we focused on including physicians in bundled hospital payments within the Medicare program.

Medicare is of particular importance in health care given Medicare payment policy changes typically reverberate throughout the system. Nonetheless, we agree with Bowman that it is useful to highlight other pockets of health care for which physicians providing inpatient care do not have to submit a bill for each daily visit.
