    CMMI Seeks Reviewers for Bundling Payment Improvement Initiative

    Physical therapists are encouraged to apply to become review panelists for the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation's (CMMI) Bundled Payments for Care Improvement Initiative. This initiative has 4 broadly defined models of care, 3 of which would involve a retrospective bundled payment arrangement, with a target price (target payment amount) for a defined episode of care and 1 of which would be paid prospectively. CMMI is ready to bring together expert panel members for the review of applications for models 2, 3, and 4. 

    Review panels will be held in Baltimore, Maryland, for 2 full days of meetings the week of September 19. Prior time commitment and travel to Baltimore will be required. Reimbursement of travel expenses and an honorarium will be offered.

    If you are interested in participating, e-mail Diane Graham by August 17. CMMI will evaluate the panel list, finalize the list of panel reviewers, and contact applicants by August 27.

    I would also like to be a possible candidate. The contact to Diane Graham was not a set up email off this site. If there still the possibility of participating? Thanks, Lisa Cleveland, PT

    As noted in the article, individuals who are the interested in becoming CMMI reviewers should e-mail Diane Graham using the link that is provided in the last paragraph. Please note that the deadline to express interest for this particular panel was August 17. The contact is not an APTA employee, nor is the association directly involved with the initiative. Therefore, APTA does not have any influence as to whether late e-mails will be accepted.
