Robert Stone was a featured speaker during this webinar program hosted by the American Health Lawyers Association (AHLA). This program provided an overview of Bundled Payments for Care Improvement (BPCI) principles and draw upon the BPCI experiences of a Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation (CMMI) official at the forefront of implementing BPCI, in-house counsel for one of only three physician practice awardees under BPCI Model 3, and an attorney representing BPCI Model 2 awardees. The program's objectives were to provide a better understanding of:
- Principles relating to participation in the four BPCI models;
- Gainsharing and other contractual arrangements involving awardees and health care providers;
- Fraud and abuse waivers; Legal issues, opportunities, and challenges for attorneys representing health care providers in the BPCI program (e.g., negotiating implementation protocols with CMMI, operationalizing improvements to care); and
- CMMI’s experiences and challenges in developing and adjusting BPCI.
