The Patient Driven Payment Model (PDPM) took effect on October 1, 2019 and the Resource Utilization Groups (RUGs) system ended. PDPM relies on rapid, accurate patient assessment and diagnosis, and on MDS and ICD-10 coding to determine payments for each SNF patient. Incorrect or insufficient coding can significantly impact the payment rate for each patient. Building ICD-10 coding proficiency is essential to ensure proper reimbursement for needed care and services. SNF billing staff, MDS staff, nursing and therapy staff, and admissions and discharge staff all need to be coding proficient.
To assist in the building of coding proficiency, AHCA has partnered with the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA) to offer two targeted on-line trainings.
This 4-hour course is designed to give non-coding professionals the knowledge they need to successfully support PDPM.
Who should attend: Nursing Home Administrators, Director of Nursing, Nursing Leadership, Facility Department Managers, RAI Coordinator, QA Director.
