Patient-Driven Payment Model (PDPM)


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.
