Patient Driven Payment Model:
MatrixCare Resources to support your preparation
The resources compiled on this page are intended to support your preparation and compliance for implementation of the Patient Driven Payment Model (PDPM). We have highlighted the resources suggested by CMS. However, there are many other resources available to assist your team. We will continue to add resources and references as applicable.
In late July, CMS released the Final rule for FY 2019 which “replaces the existing case-mix classification methodology, the Resource Utilization Groups, Version IV (RUG-IV) model, with a revised case-mix methodology called the Patient-Driven Payment Model (PDPM) beginning on October 1, 2019”. Learn how PDPM differs from RUGS-IV and what you need to do in order to be ready for the proposed October 1, 2019 implementation date.
