Presented on June 14, 2019

The new Medicare Patient Driven Payment Model (PDPM) is a significant change which will require in-depth, detailed training and planning.

  • Recognize the impact of the primary diagnosis clinical category “Non-surgical Orthopedic/Musculoskeletal” in the Other Orthopedic clinical category for PT and OT.
  • Review the chapter specific ICD-10 coding guidelines for diagnosis codes included in Primary Diagnosis Clinical

Category “Non-surgical Orthopedic/Musculoskeletal” for the Other Orthopedic PT/OT Clinical Category.

  • Identify the steps for correct coding for some common SNF diagnoses from this Primary Diagnosis Clinical Category.
