What is PDPM?

PDPM is the proposed skilled nursing facility (SNF) payment system designed to promote value-based care by shifting incentives from the volume of services a patient receives to a system where payments are based on the patient’s condition and care needs. A CMS fact sheet on the final rule, effective October 1, 2019, provides more details on this new case-mix model and incentive changes.

This fifth session will discuss the components of PDPM and how they contribute to the overall payment rate.  We will dig into the Variable Adjustment Factor for the PT/OT and NTA components, and show examples of how the per diem rate changes over the length of the Medicare stay.  In addition, we will discuss the Interim Payment Assessment (IPA) and Interrupted Stay Policy: two aspects of PDPM that may significantly affect reimbursement.  Facility policy and care coordination processes play a role in ensuring PDPM success; we will outline opportunities for improvement and strategies for facilitating these changes in your organization.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe the aspects of PDPM that affect per diem rates and overall reimbursement
  • Understand the potential impact of variable reimbursement on facility budget planning and resource allocation
  • Apply strategies for getting systems in place to mitigate financial and compliance risk
