Implementing the Patient-Driven Payment Model (PDPM)

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) will soon eliminate the current Resource Utilization Group (RUGs) Medicare Part A Prospective Payment System (PPS) and replace it with a new PPS called the Patient-Driven Payment Model (PDPM).  PDPM is intended to promote more specialized treatment of patients with more medically complex care needs, foster individual care planning, and to reduce the administrative burden for skilled nursing facilities. 

In preparation for this conversion:

  • PDPM & MDS trainings were held for providers in June, August, September, October, and November
  • PDPM data will be available for full 2021-2023 base period for the SFY25 rates (effective July 1, 2024)
  • Kansas will not use an Optional State Assessment (OSA)
  • The Nursing component of PDPM will be used for Medicaid acuity adjustments
  • Below is a list of questions and answers gathered from the November 6, 2023, Kansas Medicaid PDPM training and a PDPM table:

Rate Setting Process

  • Basics of the Rate Setting Process

  • Timeline for the Rate Setting Process

*The final nursing facility methodology and rates are posted in the Kansas Register on the Secretary of State’s website.
