PDPM Part 3: Nursing Case Mix Groups

PDPM Part 3: Nursing Case Mix Groups 

On October 1, 2019 CMS will implement the Patient Driven Payment Method (PDPM), a new payment system for Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) providers. The new payment system significantly changes how SNF Per Diem rates for Medicare beneficiaries in a Medicare Part A stay will be determined. SNF providers need to have a solid understanding of this new system prior to October 1! 

In Part 3 of our 6 Part PDPM webinar series we will begin to look at the nursing component and the corresponding 25 case mix groups. This course will identify each of the 6 main Nursing Categories and the MDS items that impact each category. We will also discuss the role of the PHQ-9® and restorative nursing in the assignment of nursing CMGs.
