PDGM: Hysterics of the Year 2000 all over again (Chicago, IL)

The Patient Driven Grouper Model is the first major change to the home health payor system since 2000. We are moving away from therapy utilization driven payment to a payment largely driven by diagnoses codes. This course will provide an overview of the PDGM along with practical guidance and action items for readiness for January 1, 2020, including improving agency efficiencies to decrease days to RAP, investigating agency LUPAs and correcting as necessary, raising the level of quality and accuracy of your diagnosis coding and more.

What we’ll cover:

  1. Identify the major aspects of PDGM
  2. Explain community vs. institutional as a component of PDGM
  3. Explain operational changes necessary for 30 day payment periods
  4. Explain Low Utilization Payment Adjustments (LUPAs) and their impact on payment
  5. Explain the role of the primary diagnosis and other diagnoses in PDGM
  6. Explain the functional component of the billing code derived from OASIS items
  7. Explain the significance of the changes to OASIS known as OASIS D1
