MISAHWAKA — Saint Joseph Regional Medical Center has been selected as one of 500 healthcare organizations across the nation to begin participating in the Bundled Payments for Care Improvement Initiative. Under the Bundled Payments initiative, CMS will link payments for multiple services that patients receive during an episode of care, resulting in more coordinated care for beneficiaries and lower costs for Medicare. The Bundled Payments for Care Improvement initiative includes four models of bundling payments, varying by the types of health care providers involved and the services included.
