AGA: Bundled Payment Option for Colonoscopy

Bundled payments are one option for alternative payment models. The American Gastroenterological Association offers suggestions for creating a bundled payment option for colonoscopy.

Colonoscopy bundle, including screening, diagnostic and surveillance, would cover:
•    Pre-procedure period: includes physician/staff consultation and bowel preparation instruction
•    Procedure: includes fees for colonoscopy, anesthesia, facility and pathology
•    Post-procedure: communication with patient and repeat procedures if post-colonoscopy bleeding occurs or bowel prep leads to incomplete procedure
