WEBINAR: "PDPM - Ready or Not, Here it Comes!"Join us for a free PDPM webinar!

9/10/2019 - By Saltmarsh Healthcare Consulting

Effective October 1, 2019, skilled nursing facility (SNF) providers will be paid for Medicare Part A services under an entirely new per-diem SNF prospective payment system (PPS) the Patient Driven Payment Model (PDPM). Payment under the RUG-IV SNF PPS model will end on September 30, 2019. PDPM represents the most significant change in SNF Medicare Reimbursement since the implementation of PPS more than 20 years ago!

As the October deadline rapidly approaches, the Saltmarsh Healthcare team has put together a two-hour webinar entitled "PDPM - Ready or Not, Here it Comes!" This free webinar will occur on Friday, September 20th, from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm EST


  • An overview of the changes in the assessment process and schedules, the clinical information that will be necessary to determine optimal case-mix payment rates, how therapy service delivery may change, and related data reported.
  • The impact of PDPM on all aspects of SNF operations including the front office, admissions, clinical documentation, MDS coding, care planning, service delivery, compliance, and billing processes.
  • The aspects of Medicare coverage and payment for services in a SNF that are NOT changing.
  • And finally, recent developments from CMS and what steps you should be taking NOW to be ready for October 1st.


  • Identify key elements of the MDS assessment that will significantly affect payment under PDPM.
  • List at least three ways that clinical service delivery will better correlate to patient needs under PDPM
