Outsourcing Coding and Billing: Key to PDGM Success?

The upcoming Patient-Driven Groupings Model (PDGM), scheduled to take effect on January 1, 2020, will drastically alter the way home health organizations of all sizes manage operations.

If providers do not change behaviors to boost payments, they stand to lose that 6.42%, or more than $1 billion across the industry, once PDGM takes effect.
