PDGM Education

The Patient-Driven Groupings Model (PDGM), which was implemented on January 1, 2020, will revolutionize the payment methodology for all Medicare Home Health Agencies in the United States. We’ve developed several options to provide you with the in-depth tools you need to ensure your agency is fully prepared to make a smooth transition. Click on the links below to find the resources that are right for you and your team.

“We could not have prepared for this major payment and process change without the direction NAHC provided. We used the NAHC Webinars, updates with the experts, conferences, summits, physician education, tools, etc. to steer our way through the preparation stage of PDGM. Without NAHC’s resources and the NAHC leadership team sharing their expertise, we are certain we would be much less prepared for PDGM and more at risk as an agency.”

— Susan VandeBrake, Administrator at Atrio Home Health

*Coming Soon* 2020 PDGM National Summits

As a follow up to last year’s successful one-day summits, we will co-host 12 one-day summits across the United States in partnership with the NAHC Forum of States. These will occur late-March to mid-April. More details to come.
