Patient Driven Payment Model (PDPM) is the proposed SNF Payment System that correlates payment to the patients’ conditions and care needs rather than volume of services (Cost-Based) provided or resources rendered (PPS RUGs System).  

One component of the Patient Driven Payment Model (PDPM) is the tapering of payment the longer the patient stays. It is common practice for therapists to develop patient specific transitions of care. These mechanisms are not new but may have been overlooked under the current payment system.  

The speaker takes a deeper dive into Modes and Models of Therapy as well as Clinically Anticipated Stay to provide participants with strategizes to decrease length of stay while providing clinically appropriate length of stay per individualized patient needs to attain and maintain his/her highest practicable physical, mental, and psychosocial well-being regardless of payor source.

“The proposed new case-mix classification system (the PDPM) would be effective October 1, 2019.  CMS encourages comments, questions, or thoughts on this proposed rule and will accept comments until June 26, 2018.”
