Webinar: Bundled Payments

The Path Forward

This virtual event, on June 4th 2024, brought together thought leaders, policymakers, and providers, to review the current evidence and best practices around bundled payments and the policy path forward. This was particularly timely given the Request for Information (RFI) that the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) issued about its next bundled payment model release. This event, sponsored by the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD) and hosted by The Parity Center. After opening remarks and a presentation on the state of the evidence, invited panelists participated in a moderated discussion led by the Director of The Parity Center, Amol Navathe, MD, PhD.
