HCAC, NAHC Set Feb. 13 Date For One-Day Conference On Patient Directed Groupings Model

Date: Nov. 20, 2019

The Home Care Association of Colorado and the National Association of Home Care, together with state home-care associations in our region, are pleased to announce that metro Denver will be the site of a one-day conference Feb. 13 on the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services' Patient Directed Groupings Model. 

Last month, CMS finalized significant changes to the Home Health Prospective Payment System to strengthen and modernize Medicare. Specifically, CMS made changes to improve access to solutions via remote patient monitoring technology, updated payments for home health care with a new case-mix system, begin the new home infusion therapy benefit, and reduce burden.

PDGM's adoption will bring significant change to home health care. The one-day regional conference on PDGM allows providers in our regions to hear from national experts on the new model, with significant time allocated to Q&A. 

HCAC will share more information shortly about speakers, venue and price to attend the conference. HCAC members will, as always, will be able to attend at a significant discount.
