The Patient-Driven Payment Model (PDPM) is the new payment model for Medicare Part A in a Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) effective October 1, 2019. Providers must begin thinking about SNF payment with an “episode of care” mindset, where patient characteristics are the driver of revenue. No payment system change is without pros and cons. But, no matter what, we must be prepared and agile, ready to handle whatever transition comes.
