Webinar - Patient Driven Payment Model: What does it mean for residents?

January 23, 2020 - January 23, 2020        

In October 2019, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services implemented a new federal nursing home payment system, the Patient Driven Payment Model (PDPM).  PDPM changed the reimbursement rules and financial incentives for skilled nursing facilities (SNFs).  As a result, advocates are already seeing changes in SNF admission practices, and in the provision of therapy services to residents.
