CMS Updates PDPM Website, Announces Early Delivery for New RAI Manual
On February 19, 2019 by Jonathan Lips
Responding to provider concerns, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is updating its new website for the Patient-Driven Payment Model and planning an earlier release of the RAI manual.
CMS first launched its new PDPM website in November. The revised site will include an updated training presentation with new information, a revised 40-page walkthrough of how patients will be classified under the payment model and an expanded FAQ page.
The Resident Assessment Instrument (RAI) manual should be released in May, a few months ahead of its normal delivery date, to help providers best prepare for the Oct. 1 PDPM start date.
