Introduction

Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback on our draft Lumbar Fusion  Bundled Payment Model and Warranty. Our workgroup will review all comments received before submitting a final draft for discussion and approval by the Bree Collaborative. Responses must be submitted no later than 5pm on Friday, December 14th.

Please read the draft Bundle and Warranty here before completing the survey. The Evidence Table is available here.  After you have read the documents, we estimate that this survey will take 10-15 minutes to complete. Please note that your comments (except for contact information) will be posted on our website and disseminated in a public meeting. 

Bundled payment models align healthcare delivery, purchasing, and payment with an evidence-informed community standard for quality. The four cycles within the bundled payment model include standards for appropriateness, requirements for fitness for surgery, elements of best-practice surgery, and components of post-surgical care to return the patient to function as well as quality standards. The warranty is a stand-alone product that does not include quality standards other than accountability for complications. The Bree Collaborative developed a bundled payment model for lumbar fusion in November 2014 and elected to re-review and update this recommendation in 2018.
