CMS recently announced BPCI Advanced as a new model which will join the existing Innovation Center projects. The Bundled Payments for Care Improvement Advanced (BPCI Advanced) will qualify as an Advanced APM for providers. There are over 30 episode based versions of the BPCI-A which are designed with cost of care, quality, and electronic connectivity in mind. The initial run is from October 1, 2018 and goes through December 31, 2023. There will be a formal, independent evaluation to assess the quality of care and changes in spending under the model.
