Special Session on New Payment Model at AHCA/NCAL Convention

Danielle Levitan




The Advance Registration deadline is next month, so don’t delay.


The Patient-Driven Payment Model (PDPM) is now final with implementation scheduled for October 2019.

To help you prepare, AHCA/NCAL is offering a four-hour intensive session at convention in October. Replacing RUGs — CMS’ New SNF Payment System & How to Get Ready will address and answer all of your implementation questions. Register today and take advantage of the Advance Registration savings from now until September 21.

The intensive will be held on Sunday, October 7 and repeated on Wednesday, October 10.

AHCA’s educational approach to PDPM will be to offer a holistic picture of how PDPM impacts SNFs and will incorporate PDPM interactions with:
·         Requirements of Participation
·         Survey and Licensure
·         SNF Rehospitalization Measure Value-Based Purchasing
·         IMPACT Act Quality Reporting Program
·         Other payers’ (Medicare Advantage and Medicaid) and their probable responses to PDPM

In addition to in-depth training on the PDPM final rule, a members-only tool kit will be introduced that will contain the core competencies framework and a readiness review tool that will help you track your operational readiness for PDPM. The intensive will also cover data gathered from 12 companies testing impacts of PDPM and provide hospital and discharge pattern data that could be helpful in member markets. Finally, a panel discussion of AHCA members will discuss opportunities and potential pitfalls for SNFs as they consider operational changes necessary to be successful under PDPM.

Attendance at the PDPM Intensive: The PDPM intensive sessions will be open to all convention attendees who have purchased a Sunday Only, Wednesday Only, Full or Premium meeting package possessing an Attendee, Sunday, or Wednesday badge. All other badge holders will not be given access. Access to PDPM proprietary tools will be provided via e-mail to SNF provider members only via e-mail at the conclusion of the convention.
