As skilled nursing facilities (SNF) transition to the Patient Driven Payment Model (PDPM), effective October 1, 2019, there are two primary coding changes that will impact reimbursement: the use of Minimum Data Set (MDS) Section G to Section GG for functional components for physical therapy, occupational therapy and nursing case mix indexes; and diagnosis coding as the primary reason for the SNF stay to support patient characteristics for physical therapy (PT), occupational therapy (OT), speech therapy (ST), nursing and the non-therapy ancillary (NTA) case mix indexes and reimbursement.

In this 2-part webinar series, attendees will:

  • Understand the transition from Section G to Section GG coding for the functional component and reimbursement starting October 1, 2019.
  • Become aware of current coding inaccuracies of the submitted Section GG on the 5-day MDS.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of the intent and guidelines of Section GG as outlined by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).
  • Be able to define and explain each component of Section GG for PT, OT and nursing items.
  • Apply the coding scale accurately to capture the usual performance utilizing real SNF patient examples.
  • Demonstrate documentation supporting coding of Section GG for reimbursement purposes.
  • Understand the PDPM requirements for identifying the reason for the SNF stay.
  • Review risks associated with incorrect diagnosis coding, including the impact of return to provider codes.
  • Learn to utilize the CMS tools for correct diagnosis coding under PDPM.
  • Practice coding scenarios for SNF admission examples using coding manuals and other tools.
