At the 1st National Dual Eligibles Summit, Dr. Al Dobson delivered a presentation entitled “Can Medicare Acute and Post-Acute Care Payment Bundles Improve Care for Dual Eligibles?” In the presentation, Dr. Dobson argued that Medicare acute and post-acute care payment bundling is a sensible, near-term policy approach to payment reform for dual eligibles. Payment bundling could address misaligned provider incentives under siloed prospective payment systems and the lack of care coordination faced by the vast majority of dual eligibles in fee-for-service.  The presentation was based on a research study funded by The Commonwealth Fund.
