Are you preparing your home health agency for the upcoming Patient-Driven Groupings Model (PDGM) set to take into effect in 2020? The PDGM represents the most significant change in the Medicare home health program. This change will involve payment methodology, including the unit of payment, the case mix adjusters, Low Utilization Payment Adjustment (LUPA) standards, and payment for Non-Routine Medical Supplies.
When the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) released details of its home health payment reform plan mid-year, it broadly provided an overview of how PDGM will better align reimbursement with patient needs and address payment incentives found within the current system. Industry experts have been able to break down the proposed changes. Changes that will drastically change the way many home health agencies operate.
How do you prepare your agency for the upcoming radical changes?
The National Association for Home Care & Hospice will be holding nationwide summits for c-executives to provide tools and knowledge to:
- Gain a better understanding of what PDGM means for you and your agency
- Identify key threats to the home health industry and how to overcome them
- Strategically develop a process to lessen the impact of PDGM on your HHA
- Discuss the steps NAHC is taking and will take in the future to address areas of concern
