The structure of determining the payment grouping is as follows: Admission Source & Timing (Claims) - (Community Early, Community Late, Institutional Early or Institutional Late) Clinical Grouping (Primary Diagnosis) - (Medication Management Teaching & Assessment (MMTA), Neuro Rehab, Wounds, Complex Nursing Interventions, Musculoskeletal (MS) Rehab, Behavioral Health) Functional Level (OASIS Items) - Low, Medium, High Comorbidity Adjustment (Secondary Diagnoses) - No or Yes Low Utilization Payment Adjustments (LUPAs) will exist in the PDGM, but there will be multiple ways to calculate them versus the current standard. All this and much more is addressed in this MUST VIEW session!
