Billing Alert for Long-Term Care

October 1 will be here before we know it. And with that comes Medicare’s new Patient-Driven Payment Model (PDPM) for beneficiaries accessing their skilled nursing facility (SNF) Part A benefit. It seems like every day there is a new webinar being advertised to help you understand the ins and outs of PDPM, but if there’s one thing you can know without any training, it’s that the new payment model is a much more complex system than the resource utilization group, version IV (RUG-IV) system that we operate under currently. As we analyze data collected in our facilities trying to understand our place in a PDPM world, though, don’t forget this important consideration: your therapy contract.

The Bottom Line

Sponsored by AMBR for Long-Term Care!

Join us June 12 for this 60-minute webinar  in which attendees will learn the basics of the PDPM structure and how reimbursement will be calculated differently under a system driven by patient characteristics, rather than therapy minutes. PDPM’s effect on a facility’s revenue will also be explained, as well as MDS documentation’s new role in producing a clean claim, and how to ensure accurate reimbursement by including appropriate adjustment factors for certain components.
