What is bundling dating
Despite shifts in regulatory policy introduced by the Trump administration earlier this month, representatives from the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) say that the new mandatory bundling program for cardiac care—and some expansions in the existing bundling program for knee and hip replacements—will roll out as scheduled on July 1.Questions about implementation arose after President Donald Trump signed an executive order mandating a freeze on the implementation of all new rules for the first 60 days of the new administration.1, two bundled payment programs for heart attack treatment and bypass surgery billed through Medicare.The new mandatory payment models—called the Acute Myocardial Infarction (AMI) Model and the Coronary Artery Bypass Graft (CABG) Model—are retrospective, 90-day bundles in which hospitals will need to reduce their episodic costs below a target quality-adjusted cost threshold lower than the historical average.
The interim rule also will delay the Cardiac Rehabilitation Incentive Payment Model, which encourage providers in 90 U. regions to use cardiac rehabilitation, from July 1, 2017, until Oct.

The cardiac model will be applied to care associated with bypass surgery and heart attacks, and includes provisions that will incentivize the use of cardiac rehabilitation.
