Medicare Update

Presented by: Jim Plonsey

Jim Plonsey has over 35 years healthcare experience.

This conference will cover the new PDGM payment system set to begin in 2020. This is the most dramatic change in Medicare Reimbursement since 2000. Most providers have not experienced a shift in reimbursement.

Therapy visits will shift from per visit to salary model. Outpatient Therapy will become a more viable strategy.  Agencies who fail to adapt quickly could face severe cash crunch by April 2020.
