Bundled Payments for Palliative Care in Colorado

March 2015






Background: The purpose of this project is to gather information about the impact of a bundled palliative care service on patient medical and behavioral health services utilization and the total costs of care.

Goal: The project is going to analyze patients’ costs and utilization 6 months prior to the intervention, through the intervention and 6 months after the intervention. That data will then be compared to the data for non-intervention patients to determine impact on utilization and cost. Any cost savings will be reduced by the cost of the intervention to determine net savings.

Data Analyzed: Medicaid and Medicare Advantage dual eligible.

Results: In Progress
