  • Webinar
  • Speaking

Join CLA's Deb Freeland as she presents on the operational and administrative changes that might be necessary to sustain your organization during the transition to the new payment system. The Patient-Driven Payment Model (PDPM) introduces many changes to the assessment and clinical practices related to residents in skilled nursing homes. As a result, nursing home providers need to consider a variety of operational and administrative issues, including the reimbursement specific components of the new case-mix classification model.

At the end of this session, you will be able to:

  • Understand the aspects of the variable per diem payment rate and the connection to resource use.

  • Recognize the financial drivers that will determine reimbursement under PDPM as compared to RUGs.

  • Consider the fiscal impact of the shift to PDPM for your organization’s unique resident case mix.

Who should attend:

Nursing home providers and life plan communities with health care centers that accept Medicare skilled nursing payment. Content might also be relevant for CEOs, COOs, CFOs, administrators and admissions coordinators.
