Providence 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.
Providence Medical Center 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.
Providence Medical Center 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,
Providence Medical Center may share payments received from Medicare as a result of reduced episode
spending and hospital internal cost savings with collaborating providers
Providence Medical Center 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
Providence Medical Center in order to share in financial rewards and/or losses in the CJR model:
