Workshop Description

The Patient Driven Groupings Model (PDGM) went into effect January 1, 2020. This is the most massive change to the home care industry reimbursement structure since the introduction of the Prospective Payment System (PPS) in October 2000. The new payment model has dramatically impacted agency operations, processes and performance. January 2023 brings even more issues with rate changes that have been proposed for home health and the impending Value-Based Purchasing Nationwide Rollout.  This workshop will discuss key areas, strategies and processes in assisting an agency in staying ahead of PDGM changes and reimbursement rates.  This webinar series will have a focus on best episode management and process improvement practices including the referral, intake and scheduling processes, timely documentation, physician and patient communication strategies, all of which are required to more tightly manage care within the 30-day payment period. The Notice of Admission (NOA) will be reviewed in detail with examples of exceptions and how agencies should respond.  Lastly, this series will review the emphasis of ICD-10 coding under PDGM and how agencies will have to monitor to ensure the specificity of coding for their patient care plans.  Lastly this series will review the impact of Medicare Advantage claims on the Home Health Revenue Cycle.
