Medicare Patient-Driven Groupings Model:
A Revolution in Medicare Home Health Payment

One-Day Intensive Educational Program
Preparing Home Health Agencies for 2020 and Beyond


Is your agency prepared to deal with the most consequential changes to impact home health in decades? The Patient-Driven Groupings Model (PDGM) will revolutionize the payment methodology for all Medicare Home Health Agencies in the United States. PDGM, created by CMS, is slated to debut on January 1, 2020. Agencies must prepare immediately for these important regulatory changes. Significant operational and organizational reforms must be undertaken by your agency in early 2019 to successfully transition to PDGM.

PDGM is critical to your future success.

PDGM represents the most significant change in the Medicare home health program in the 21 st Century. It will radically change the payment methodology, including the unit of payment, the case mix adjuster, Low Utilization Payment Adjustment standards, and payment for Non-Routine Medical Supplies.

You must begin preparing immediately!

Home Health Agencies must initiate significant organizational and operational changes in early 2019 in order to successfully transition to PDGM. To help you get ready, join the National Association for Home Care & Hospice (NAHC), in partnership with the NAHC Forum of State Associations and the Home Care and Hospice Financial Managers Association, for an intensive one-day summit that will prepare your Medicare HHA for the PDGM revolution.

Why should you attend?

It is critical for you to have the new tools and knowledge necessary to understand and adapt your business to these important changes. These in-depth, one-day summits will cover all facets of managing change to PDGM – operations; clinical; financial; data analytics; and technology. Faculty drawn from the top home health consulting firms in the nation will provide you with the skills you need to smoothly and successfully transition to PDGM.
