Part 1: How did we get here? and Where are we going?
We will briefly review the changes in home health regulations/reimbursement and what caused these changes to arise. We will follow-up with a brief overview of the current PPS; the Pro’s and Con’s; all of which will lead us to our discussion of PDGM. In our discussion of PDGM, we will learn more about the significant changes; especially from a regulatory and reimbursement perspective as well as what the perceived intent is of CMS. The better we understand the rationale of CMS, MedPac and Congress for these changes, the better we will be able to operate in this new reimbursement environment and prepare for other unidentified changes still to come.
After this presentation, attendees will be able to:
* Identify the significant differences between PPS and
* Explain the CMS rationale for the change to PDGM.
* Analyze and criticize proposed rules from CMS.
* Build a plan to financially manage their agency under
