In November of 2015, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) released a final rule to implement a new payment model known as the Comprehensive Care of Joint Replacement Model (CJR), which effectively changes Medicare reimbursement for hip and knee replacements from fee for service to a bundled payment.

This CJR Model is required to be implemented by certain hospitals located in designated metropolitan statistical areas (the CJR Hospitals) by April 1, 2016. To see if yours is a CJR Hospital, or for additional information, please read our client alert.
