The latest on PDPM and what it means for care process
Tuesday, January 29, 2019 1PM ET/ 12PM CT
This special webinar will provide some thought-provoking questions to help you get ready for the biggest change in long-term care in decades. Beginning October 1, a new case-mix model, the Patient-Driven Payment Model (PDPM), is set to take effect and replace the existing RUG-IV case-mix classification model. Reimbursement will largely shift from rehabilitation services to nursing services. It is essential that skilled nursing facilities consider every care process, from improved nursing assessment skills to a different relationship with their rehab provider. Learning Objectives:
Contrast and Compare the Current RUGS-IV payment model to the coming Patient-Driven Payment Model.
Understand the point-of-stay variable per diem pay adjustments, for physical therapy- and occupational therapy-driven and non-therapy ancillary services
Explain the shift supporting reimbursement for nursing services dependent on accurate assessments, treatment modalities, and the required human and vendor resources needed to deliver quality care
