In bundled payment, the health care provider (hospital or physician) gets is paid by costs expected to be incurred as per the clinical diagnosis of the patient. It is a system of payment that has been proposed in the US as a strategy to reduce the costs of medical care.

In January 2013, the Contact Management System (CMS) promulgated that several health care corporations will begin implementing the BPCI- Bundled Payments for Care Improvement later in the year. This was after the Affordable Care Act Law was passed paving the way for the health care reforms to be implemented.

On a paper published by Deirdre Baggot and one, Ms. Cleo Burtley titled- Bundled Payments- they both try to explain the financial benefits all stakeholders in the healthcare system will reap from bundled payment, though at first, it may seem like a small move.

The new law covers not only elective surgeries and medical conditions but also post-surgical care with an increased the period of supervision.
