PDPM Resources

Patient-Driven Payment Model is a replacement of the current SNF PPS RUG-IV system. PDPM uses a completely different way to calculate payments, shifting the focus of payment from the volume of patient services received to a payment system designed to take into consideration the needs and goals of the whole person. The goal of PDPM is to recognize the individual needs and characteristics of each patient. As PDPM approaches, it is important to seek education and information about the new payment model and how it will impact therapy services. This page is designed to provide education and training in preparation for the implementation of PDPM.
