The Bundled Payments for Care Improvement (BPCI) initiative1 and its 2018 successor, BPCI-Advanced (BPCI-A), which continues through 2023, are central to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (CMS’) move toward value-based and alternative payment models.2 Under bundled payments, an accountable entity takes responsibility for the costs of an “episode” of care from hospitalization through 90 days after discharge.
