Week One of PDPM – “One-Time” Transitional Policies Webinar

Week One of PDPM – “One-Time” Transitional Policies Webinar
September 17, 2019
3:00-4:30 PM Eastern Time
Presenters:  Mike Cheek, AHCA Senior Vice President, Reimbursement Policy; and Dan Ciolek, AHCA Associate Vice President, Therapy Advocacy

During this 90- minute live webinar, the presenters will discuss details related to unique challenges providers will face during the SNF PPS transition period from the RUG-IV to PDPM.  Many of these are related to “one-time” transitional policies for residents receiving Part A services under RUGs in September and transitioning to PDPM on October 1.  Specific topics to be discussed include: 1) Handling RUG-IV assessments and billing for late September admissions expected to extend into October; 2) Use of the 5-Day PDPM assessment versus the Transitional IPA Assessment during week one in October; 3) Interrupted stay policy during week one in October; 4) Assessment considerations for payers that may have continued with RUG-III or RUG-IV payment models (i.e. Medicaid, Medicare Advantage, VA); and 5) Strategies to troubleshoot and resolve payment challenges should they occur.  AHCA will also post an on-demand recording of the live webinar as well as written Q&A responses to all questions submitted shortly after the live webinar.
