Explaining legal and regulatory issues in bundled payments to facilitate their use by health plans and provider groups

With this grant, Nixon Peabody will produce a written issue brief, tentatively titled Legal Issues in Designing Bundled Payments and Shared-Savings Arrangements in the Commercial Payer Context. The brief will provide a basic understanding of federal and state laws and regulations that must be considered when designing bundled payments or shared-savings arrangements, and will include multiple examples of successful arrangements. The brief may also contain an addendum with sample contract provisions and will provide guidance to health plans, provider groups, and other convening entities that are designing and implementing similar payment changes. The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation will publish the brief, along with any accompanying materials, on its website, as well as on Nixon Peabody's website, and will disseminate the information widely and share it for public use.
