Last August CMS provided a one-time retroactive opportunity to withdraw in total from the BPCI Advanced program or withdraw selected clinical episodes by March 1, 2019. This grace period allowed participants to “test the waters” between October 2018 and February 2019 before making a final decision. Participants that retroactively withdraw in total or for select clinical episodes are not held accountable for those episodes, meaning that any losses incurred relative to the established target prices will not be charged to the bundler.
