PDPM Rate Chart

PDPM Rate Chart tool

The PDPM Rate Chart includes sections on the PT/OT, SLP, NTA and Nursing Components. Each box captures the component and important factors that tie into the Case Mix Group requirements. The Case Mix Index (CMI) is listed and extrapolated into the daily rate for both Rural and Urban facility categories. The FY 2019 PDPM Unadjusted Federal Payment Rates per diem for both Rural and Urban categories are listed in the tables. Formulas are used to apply these rates to the CMI to get the component per diem rate in dollars.

The PDPM Rate Chart is for informational purposes only and not intended to be used to make classification decisions.

This is a physical product.

    TOPIC

    THE PHYSICIAN QUERY PROCESS

    In order to assign the most appropriate ICD-10-CM diagnostic code, clear, precise diagnostic information must be provided by the practitioner.  Lack of such information leads to the assignment of an unspecified ICD-10-CM code.  Unfortunately many unspecified codes are mapped to "Return to Provider" under the Patient Driven Payment Model (PDPM).  Throughout the ICD-10-CM Coding Guidelines as well as in the AHA Coding Clinic, those assigning the diagnostic code are directed to 'query the provider' to obtain clarity and subsequently be able to assign the most appropriate code.  However, the querying process is not without risks of accusations of fraud.  There are specific criteria which must be incorporated in the querying process.  These criteria will be addressed during this webinar, including the provision of sample querying tools.
