Today the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced delayed expansion of the Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement (CJR) Model and the implementation of the Cardiac Rehabilitation Incentive Payment Model from July 1, 2017 to Oct 1, 2017. An interim final rule has been posted to the Federal Register, delaying the effective date for a second time, from March 21 to May 20, 2017.

This includes a delay of the Cardiac Rehabilitation Incentive Payment Model. The CMS is seeking comments on pushing back implementation of all these bundled payment initiatives even further – into 2018.
