PDPM Preparedness

Are You Prepared for PDPM?

Right now, many of you are wondering how the proposed Patient-Driven Payment Model, or PDPM for short, will impact your business. To be clear, this new reimbursement model is not just a revision of the current Resource Utilization Group (RUG) system. It’s a total overhaul of the payment model used by SNFs since 1998.

Based on what we currently know, reimbursement under PDPM will be primarily driven by a patient’s diagnosis, rather than the amount of therapy provided. This will impact the way future services are managed and delivered.

Although PDPM is currently still under consideration, we’ve assembled all the information we’ve learned so far. Our goal is to help you better understand this new, game-changing payment model.

We’re Responding with a Revolutionary Clinical Model.

Rest assured, TMC is staying ahead of the curve. We’re currently developing a proactive model of care versus the reactive model our industry uses now. This means better care for patients, and more efficient systems for you. In fact, we’ve already made impressive progress in a number of critical areas.

If you’d like to know more about how TMC is preparing for the PDPM change, and how our new processes can help you prepare, too, call us now at (800) 804-9961 or contact us.

TMC is a great partner. TMC provides a level of service and program customization that we are not able to get from other providers. They take the time to understand our individual properties and craft a therapy program that sets us apart from our competition and meets the needs of our residents. They are truly interested in our success. We couldn’t ask for a better therapy partner.
