PDPM (Patient Driven Payment Model): Are You Ready? It’s Right Around the Corner!

August 6, 2019 - The Chateau, 1621 Jumer Drive, Bloomington, IL 
August 7, 2019 - DoubleTree by Hilton, 222 Potomac Blvd., Mt. Vernon, IL
In 2017, CMS began looking at a way to pay nursing facilities that would eliminate some of the ongoing concerns about therapy utilization and other costs that affect the care of the resident. This new SNF reimbursement system, PDPM (Patient Driven Payment Model), will replace the current RUGs-based payment system. PDPM includes five different components of care that will affect payment - PT, OT, SLP, NTA (Non Therapy Ancillaries) and Nursing.

This session will not only address the facility ramifications due to the change, but also discuss how accurate ICD-10 coding will be crucial to your success. This full day workshop will start with diagnosis coding, work through PDPM including a case study, and end with participants having a plan to implement in their facilities.
