[Webinar] PDPM demystified: What you need to know now

Ken BellIndustry, Secure News, Training6 Comments

Say goodbye to RUGs-IV and say hello to PDPM.

The much-anticipated RCS-1 system is no longer on the horizon. Instead, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) published the Patient-Driven Payment Model (PDPM) in the FY 2019 SNF PPS Proposed Rule. The PDPM payment model for PPS SNF patients is proposed to be implemented in October 2019.

With barely a year to prepare, providers are hungry for information about PDPM. Understanding this model now will help your facility prepare for the coming changes.

As we move away from a payment model driven by therapy minutes to one based on patient characteristics, how will your facility continue to provide therapy in a fiscally responsible manner? How will you pay your therapy contractor when therapy minutes do not drive payment?

We’ll address these and many more questions in this informative training session.

  1. I was scheduled for the webinar on July 19 but have had to cancel; I see that the July 12 session is full. Will there be any other scheduled webinars or would there be any way possible to get registered for the July 12 session? I had an unexpected schedule change and won’t be able to attend the July 19 session.

    1. Hi Shelby – We won’t be scheduling additional sessions of this webinar, but we will post a recording after the July 19 session. Look for it on our blog. Thanks!
