With changes in care and reimbursement shifting toward value-based care, ASCs are redefining how they view reimbursement.
Value-based care is coming and ASCs need to get on board “whether you like it or not,” said to Jacob Rodman, of Raleigh (N.C.) Neurosurgical Clinic, during a panel session at the Becker’s ASC Review 26th Annual Meeting in Chicago on Oct. 24.
“When we look at a bundle, it’s really putting the ball in our court. It’s up to us to manage the expenses and manage the patients and it’s changing the way we think in terms of you do a surgery, you get paid,” Mr. Rodman said.
RNC is preparing for bundled payments to be the way of the future. Blue Cross Blue Shield recently rolled out several bundles and value-based care initiatives, which could be a significant opportunity.

Bundled payments are putting the ball in the ASC court where they will be responsible for managing expenses and managing the patients, Mr. Rodman said.
“It’s changing the way we think in terms of you do a surgery, you get paid,” Mr. Rodman said. “I’m used to seeing surgeries come in and no longer than 30 days later, we get paid for them. Under these bundles, that’s not the way that happens but the end result can be that much greater.”
