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.

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. LAI has selected this nationally recognized expert and webinar series approach to facilitate a methodical, systematic, and thorough approach to understanding the PDPM. Each session dives deeper into each element of the PDPM process and will provide the necessary coding instruction for each of those elements including how the ICD-10 codes fit into the PDPM clinical categories and drive reimbursement.This webinar series approach will also eliminate travel costs and time out of the building and allow an unlimited number of staff to participate LIVE and receive CE credit!

PDPM is a significant change which will require in-depth, detailed training and planning. To be ready for PDPM, LAI encourages all SNFs to participate in this series.

Things to keep in mind:

  • Only $50/webinar when you purchase this package!
  • No travel costs or time out of the building.
  • No limit to the number of staff who can participate LIVE and receive CE credit.
