Skilled Nursing Facilities Payment Will Be Impacted By PDPM

When the Patient-Driven Payment Model (PDPM) takes effect in October 2019, Payers using the RUG system will have until September 30, 2020 to adjust their rate calculations.

With the variety of changes nearing, SNF staff will be forced to pay closer attention than ever before to their coding and billing.

This article from @skilled_nursing sheds light on this, detailing out suggestions for SNF’s to consider when approaching the changes to come.
