18. Opportunity is Knocking: PDPM Missed Opportunities and Audit Risks

Through the challenges of the past two years, a focus on Medicare systems management and MDS accuracy has been a lower priority in many cases. In this session, we’ll explore SNF/PPS reimbursement updates, and examine top areas of missed opportunity identified through PDPM audits.  Proactive Medicare auditors share insights on what IDT members can do to drive successful PDPM outcomes without having to reinvent the wheel. Emphasis will be placed on improving processes to gather necessary data for correctly capturing information impacting reimbursement accuracy and to strengthen supportive documentation.  Discussion will include avoiding common MDS coding errors to promote and maintain MDS and PDPM precision with extensive case study examples of common errors, including the financial implications.
