According to CMS, In July 2018, CMS finalized a new case-mix classification model, the Patient-Driven Payment Model (PDPM), that, effective beginning October 1, 2019, will be used under the Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) Prospective Payment System (PPS) for classifying SNF patients in a covered Part A stay.

Using the new Patient-Driven Care model should make physicians' lives easier using fewer ICD-10 codes and eventually see higher reimbursements for patients with more complex medical problems and co-morbidities.
