This webinar will provide an overview of the new Patient-Driven Payment Model (PDPM) that goes into effect for Long-Term Care Facilities (SNFs) on 10/1/2019. The webinar will describe how the payment system works and differs from the previous one, as well as the different and more crucial role that ICD-10-CM diagnosis codes will play in determining correct payment for these patients.

At the end of this webinar, attendees will be able to:
1. Understand the PDPM payment system compared to the previous system and the increased role of coding in the new system.
2. Understand the crucial need for accuracy in assigning ICD-10-CM codes and their impact on determining the correct payment group.
3. Understand coding rules/issues for coding in the PDPM system and how they differ from the acute care setting.
