The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) have selected Saint Joseph Regional Medical Center as one of 500 healthcare organizations across the nation to participate in the Bundled Payments for Care Improvement Initiative. Through this initative, made possible by the Affordable Care Act, CMS and demonstration sites will test how bundling payments for episodes of care can result in more coordinated care for beneficiaries and lower costs for Medicare.

We will continue to update this page as we progress through Phase 1 of Models 2, 3 and 4 (January - July 2013). Phase 1 participants are generally expected to become participants in Phase 2, in which approved participants opt to take on financial risk for episodes of care starting in July 2013, pending contract finalization and completion of CMS' standard program integrity reviews.
