CMS delays due dates for BPCI Advanced

CMS has extended a few of the key deadlines for the Bundled Payments for Care Improvement Advanced model.

The original due date to submit signed participation agreements and select clinical episodes for the bundled payment model was Aug. 1. CMS extended that deadline to Aug. 8. Based on that adjustment, CMS extended the due date for program deliverables to Sept. 14.

The delays come after the American Hospital Association sent a letter to CMS in June urging the agency to offer two additional start date options for BPCI Advanced. The AHA noted some applicants still hadn't received data from CMS, including episode target prices, as of June 21. CMS initially said it would supply the data by the end of May.
