ABSTRACT
The article presents information on a public meeting of the U.S. Medicare Payment Advisory Commission (MedPAC) held from March 5 to 6, 2008. The commission floated the idea of bundled payment that would be shared by both the hospital and physicians involved in delivering the treatment to root out inefficiencies in care and deliver major savings. Conditions that are best suited for bundled payment, and means to protect against incentives to increase the number of bundles were also discussed.
