PDGM – Financial Management and Planning Series
Presented by: John Riesinger, CPA
Innovative Financial Solutions for Home Health
Part One: How did we get here? and Where are we going?
January 16th, 1:30pm to 3:00pm, Eastern Time
We will briefly review the changes in home health regulations/reimbursement and what caused these changes to arise. We will follow-up with a brief overview of the current PPS; the Pro’s and Con’s; all of which will lead us to our discussion of PDGM. In our discussion of PDGM, we will learn more about the significant changes; especially from a regulatory and reimbursement perspective as well as what the perceived intent is of CMS. The better we understand the rationale of CMS, MedPac and Congress for these changes, the better we will be able to operate in this new reimbursement environment and prepare for other unidentified changes still to come.
Part Two: How to survive, even thrive under PDGM!
January 23rd, 1:30pm to 3:00pm, Eastern Time
This presentation will build on what was discussed during our first presentation. Based on our new understanding of PDGM, attendees will be exposed to various financial changes that will occur impacting Medicare revenue. Attendees will also be given insights and examples of various financial fundamentals that would help improve their financial outcomes in both the short-term and the long-term.
