Skilled Nursing Patient Driven Payment Model



Under PDPM, the HIPPS code is structured differently, as a result of there being five case-mix adjusted rate components under the revised model. The first position represents the Physical and Occupational Therapy case-mix group. The second position represents the Speech-Language Pathology case-mix group. The third character represents the nursing case-mix group. The fourth character represents the Non-Therapy Ancillary (NTA) case-mix group. The fifth character represents the AI code.
