About the Course


September 5, 2019
11:00 AM – 1:00 PM CT

This webinar will be recorded and available for on demand.


The focus of the webinar will be ICD-10-CM and PDPM.

Topics addressed will include:

  • Overview of PDPM
  • Impact of ICD-10-CM on PDPM and the MDS.

  • Documentation needs
  • PDPM implementation considerations

Effective October 1, 2019 the Patient Driven Payment Model (PDPM) will be the reimbursement model for Traditional Part A Skilled Admissions in all facilities who are receiving PPS reimbursement. It will not apply to skilled stays in Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs). It will not apply to Medicare Advantage Plans unless the Plan chooses to use the PDPM as their reimbursement approach.   However, the information presented in this webinar will be beneficial for skilled and non-skilled admissions as the importance of accurate code assignment, sequencing and quality of documentation is the same no matter what setting or payment. No specific financial information will be presented.

At the conclusion of the webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Discuss the Patient Driven Payment Model (PDPM).
  • Discuss how ICD-10-CM will impact PDPM and the MDS.
  • Distinguish between admitting, primary, principal, and secondary diagnoses.
  • Identify documentation needs for accurate assignment of ICD-10-CM Codes
  • Identify steps to take prior to PDPM being implemented.
  • Understand and apply LTC coding guidance.
  • Apply coding guidelines to skilled care scenarios and identify how the ICD-10 coding could impact the PDPM payment.

Participants may submit Skilled/LTC scenarios for which they have coding questions/concerns that they would like addressed during the webinar.   Please submit any coding questions/concerns/scenarios in the  Questions/Comments or Special Requirements  box on the registration form.  If submitting a scenario, all protected health information (PHI) must be removed.

This program has been approved for 2 continuing education units under the clinical data management domain for use in fulfilling the continuing education requirements of the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA).
