United Healthcare will offer a bundled payments program for providers caring for Medicare Advantage patients in over 30 states. The program (which will include certain procedures, including hip and knee replacements, spinal fusions and coronary bypasses) builds upon UnitedHealthcare’s existing work with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ Bundled Payments for Care Improvement Advanced (BPCI Advanced) program for fee-for-service Medicare. Integrated into the program, UnitedHealthcare will provide services and support, including care management solutions to help support care from preoperative education to post-acute care. The program also offers patient engagement tools, performance analytics and consulting, and payment administration services.
