Causes and Consequences of Healthcare Efficiency

Research Project Description
Lena Chen, Scott E. Regenbogen, Donald Likosky, Edward Norton

Recent studies of surgical bundled payments suggest that participating providers are targeting post-acute care (PAC) for savings. There is also some evidence that low SES/dual eligible patients generally use more PAC. This raises the concern that bundled payments may disproportionately harm low SES/dual eligible patients. We intend to use Medicare claims to test this hypothesis. Our findings would have immediate implications for CMS? new bundled payment programs, such as BPCI Advanced.
