PDPM Webinar Series: A comprehensive approach to readiness for October 1, 2019

This 14-part PDPM webinar series is targeted for MDS coordinators, therapy personnel, ICD-10 coders, business office and finance personnel, administrators, DONs, and all other members of the Interdisciplinary Team accountable for payment.

The new Medicare Patient Driven Payment Model (PDPM) begins October 1, 2019. For Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) providers, this will warrant not only significant operational changes but also a change of thinking as the new PDPM removes therapy minutes as a determinant of payment and strengthens the relationship between payment and clinical characteristics to promote payment accuracy and provide the resources necessary for SNFs to meet the care needs of a diverse range of residents. Key components of this payment accuracy rely upon the understanding of how the six components (PT, OT, ST, NTA, Nursing, Non-Case Mix) of the PDPM impact reimbursement. Additionally, PDPM requires a greater understanding of how to identify the medical complexity of our residents and ensure that complexity has been captured within the Minimum Data Set (MDS). The identification of medical complexity will require SNFs to have a keen understanding of the ICD-10 codes and how the ICD-10 codes determine how the resident is classified into the PDPM clinical categories.

All webinars will be held from 1:00 p.m. - 2:30 p.m. CT
