Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement

Saint Michael’s Medical Center is participating in a Medicare initiative called the Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement (CJR) model. The CJR model aims to promote quality and financial accountability for care surrounding lower-extremity joint replacement (LEJR) procedures, commonly referred to as hip and knee replacements and/or other major leg procedures. Saint Michael’s participation in the CJR model should not restrict your access to care for your medical condition or your freedom to choose your health care providers and services. All existing Medicare beneficiary protections continue to be available to you. These include the ability to report concerns of substandard care to Quality Improvement Organizations and 1-800-MEDICARE.

The CJR model aims to help give you better care.

Saint Michael’s has entered into financial arrangements with collaborating health care providers who are engaged in care redesign with the hospital and who may furnish health care services to Medicare beneficiaries during an episode of care. Under these agreements, Saint Michael’s may share payments received from Medicare as a result of reduced episode spending and hospital internal cost savings with collaborating providers and suppliers. Saint Michael’s may also share financial accountability for increased episode spending with collaborating providers and suppliers. The following list includes health care providers and suppliers that have established a collaborator agreement with each Saint Michael’s in order to share in financial rewards and/or losses in the CJR model:
