The Patient-Drive Payment Model (PDPM) is now final with implementation scheduled for October 2019. Register for convention and receive the answers to your implementation questions during a 4-hour intensive session - Replacing RUGs – CMS’ New SNF Payment System & How to Get Ready for October 2019 Implementation. The intensive will be held on Sunday, October 7 (and repeated on Wednesday, October 10).
AHCA’s educational approach to PDPM will be to offer a holistic picture of how PDPM impacts SNFs and will incorporate PDPM interactions with:
· Requirements of Participation,
· Survey and Licensure,
· SNF Re-Hospitalization Measure Value-Based Purchasing,
· IMPACT Act Quality Reporting Program, and
· Other payers’ (Medicare Advantage and Medicaid) and their probable responses to PDPM.
In addition to in-depth training on the PDPM final rule, a member’s only tool kit will be introduced that will contain the core competencies framework and a readiness review tool that will help you track your operational readiness for PDPM. The intensive will also cover data gathered from 12 companies testing impacts of PDPM and provide hospital and discharge pattern data that could be helpful in member markets. Finally, a panel discussion of AHCA members will discuss opportunities and potential pitfalls for SNFs as they consider operational changes neccessary to be successful under PDPM.
Attendance at the PDPM Intensive: Due to proprietary information, attendance at the PDPM intensive sessions (Sunday at 1:00 PM and Wednesday at 10:30 AM) is limited to SNF providers and State Affiliate staff only. No other attendee types will be permitted inside the session rooms. If attending the Sunday intensive, you must pick up your convention badge at registration prior to attending the session.
