We finally have details on what the new payment system for the home health industry may look like beginning in 2020. Now is the time to start preparing your agency for these sweeping changes. In this webinar, you will learn the key developments outlined in the proposed 2019 PPS rule and how to best set your agency up for success.

Expert speaker Robert Markette will help you understand how to determine your agency’s risk under the new Patient-Driven Groupings Model (PDGM) as outlined in the proposed rule. The rule also includes several major items that will affect payments in the coming years. You’ll get the latest on the increase to agencies’ total reimbursement in 2019 as well as proposed changes to the Home Health Quality Reporting Program, value-based purchasing, the rural add-on, and home infusion therapy.
