As healthcare moves towards a fee-for-value system, new reimbursement models are being tested by Medicare and other payers. Major new payment models will be explained in the context of how they impact physician and hospital reimbursement, and how this may redirect the type of "value" that providers are seeking from new medical devices. The session will also discuss any major policy changes from Medicare that may impact medical device reimbursement going forward. Topics covered will include:
A look at new provider payment models (i.e. bundled payments, Accountable Care Organizations, etc.)
A review of the new physician payment model under MACRA
Major Medicare policy changes that may impact medical device reimbursement going forward
Potential impact in defining "value" under these new payment models
