Evaluating CMS' Bundled Payment Initiative

Excerpt from presentation by Dr. Stuart Levine, corporate medical director for HealthCare Partners Medical Group:

"We let the patient choose their medical home. So if their medical home is their primary care doctor’s office, we’ll do whatever we can to supplement that primary care doctor’s office, even if it’s an independently contracted person with disease management, complex care management, nursing outreach, advocate social workers, etc."
