Patient-Driven Payment Model (PDPM): The Basics
On July 29, 2018, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) released the Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) FY 2019 Final Rule. Within this rule, the new Patient-Driven Payment Model (PDPM) for Medicare Part A skilled services was confirmed to be implemented October 1, 2019. This much-anticipated announcement represents a seismic change in the way SNFs are reimbursed for the skilled care they provide to Medicare beneficiaries. This webinar will provide an overview of the basics of PDPM. We will discuss the potential impact of this change on facilities’ care processes, and identify areas with a potential for error with recommendations for avoiding them.
- Summarize the new Patient Driven Payment Model and describe its components.
- Describe the assessment and documentation processes that drive PDPM reimbursement.
- Identify strategies for ensuring your organization’s interdisciplinary documentation is ready to support PDPM.
