New Medicare patient-driven payment model webcast
RECORDED WEBCAST |
The new Medicare Patient-Driven Payment Model (PDPM) changes the way skilled nursing facilities will be reimbursed. Are you and your team prepared for the transition to this new reimbursement payment system?
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) finalized a new Medicare Part A reimbursement system to replace the current RUG-IV Prospective Payment System (PPS). This new payment methodology changes the Minimum Data Set (MDS) system to focus on clinical services, including diagnoses and functional scoring, rather than placing an emphasis on therapy services provided. The final rule for fiscal year (FY) 2019 contains the details outlining the PDPM which is due to take effect in FY 2020, which starts on Oct. 1, 2019. This system is very different from the current payment model, and will require a major shift in operational and reimbursement processes in order to be successful. The better prepared facilities are to meet the challenges and changes related to the PDPM, the more successful the implementation will be.
