This one-hour webinar will cover high-level “Pitfalls” or challenges of PDPM. RKL will review each of the PDPM components and give examples of the unsuspected difficulties of capturing items on the MDS. RKL will also delve into common misconceptions like utilizing multiple codes for one diagnosis and expecting higher reimbursement. RKL will give recommendations on processes to put in place to help with ensuring the appropriate supportive documentation needed for coding.
