On-Demand Webinar

Understanding the 2020 PPS final rule and the impact of PDGM at your agency

The 2020 PPS final rule was posted to the Federal Register confirming plans to implement the Patient-Driven Groupings Model (PDGM) beginning January 1, 2020.

The good news is that CMS has cut back on plans to implement an 8.01% decrease in agencies’ payments. Instead, they are finalizing a 4.36% decrease based on assumed behavioral changes and have made some other small revisions. Most other updates, including the elimination of therapy thresholds as a factor of payment, the move from 60 day episodes to 30 day payment periods, and the factors determining case-mix and clinical groups will remain the same. Agencies can click here to review the final rule.

Join Fazzi for a free webinar session where we will:

  • Review key concepts as described in the final rule with Fazzi expert Gina Mazza, MBA, RN, BSN, Senior VP of Quality and Compliance, as she discusses finalized guidance regarding PDGM.
  • Provide participants with concrete strategies to prepare for PDGM and be ready for implementation on January 1st.
  • Hear from Kim Bradley, MSN, RN, NEA-BC, Director of Clinical Services at Sentara Enterprises as she discusses what her organization is doing now to prepare and services they are using to ensure they are PDGM ready on day 1.
