2019 PPS Proposed Rule for Home Health - PDGM Payment Proposal
Our July Webinar covered the “nuts and bolts” of the 2019 Proposed Rule and now we need to dig deeper into the implications for clinical decision-making. The home health industry has a history of following perceived payment “incentives” as evidenced by shift in utilization and/or coding each time modifications have been made to the prospective payment system. This cannot happen again with PDGM or it will confirm the suspicions both CMS and MedPAC have had for years – that agencies care more about payment than patients. This session will focus on strategies for assessing current risk areas and preparing for 2020.
