• SNF PDPM Basics an Impacts in Care Delivery Partners Toolkit

    Contains 1 Component(s)

    ​Because CMS has provided limited to no guidance to SNF care delivery partners impacted by the PDPM implementation on October 1, AHCA members have asked if we could create a webinar about PDPM that providers could share with referring hospitals, physicians, Medicare Advantage plans, Accountable Care Organizations, and Bundled Payment program partners. To help facilitate AHCA member discussions with care delivery partners about PDPM, we have prepared a one page document that includes links to the following five pre-recorded webinars and slides that are intended to be viewed by SNF care delivery partner to get a better understanding about what PDPM is, and how PDPM may impact their relationships with SNF providers.
