Description:
Since PDPM was implemented, providers have continued to adjust to new methodology and make the transition from high volume therapy minutes to a case-mix classification system for reimbursement. During this transition, we have identified many common pitfalls and learned successful strategies to avoid them.

This program will review these strategies, the impact PDPM is having on interdisciplinary teams, approaches teams can immediately implement to successfully manage these challenges, and ways to, effectively and efficiently, meet the clinical and fiscal needs of the facility. In addition, you will learn how the CMS quality initiatives impact Medicare reimbursement. Finally, given that many providers have been asking questions about how to appropriately utilize Med A benefit, during COVID-19, we will address strategies for maintaining compliance and audit readiness.
