A TEAM Approach: A Look at CMS’ Proposed Mandatory Bundled Payment Model

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) recently proposed a new mandatory bundled payment model – Transforming Episode Accountability Model (TEAM) – which will require hospitals in select regions to participate starting in January 2026. Under the proposed model, participating hospitals will be accountable for a 30-day episode of care following five selected surgical procedures: lower extremity joint replacement, surgical hip and femur fracture treatment, spinal fusion, coronary artery bypass graft and major bowel procedure.

Watch this on-demand webinar to learn more about the proposed model and what your organization can do to prepare.
