The Patient-Driven Groupings Model, or PDGM, will go into effect on January 1, 2020. PDGM is an updated version of the Home Health Groupings Model (HHGM) previously introduced by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and then discontinued in 2017. According to CMS, PDGM is an effort to reduce the cost of home healthcare delivery and encourages value over volume, removing incentives to provide unnecessary care. PDGM also makes changes to the home health unit of payment, from 60 days to 30 days. Through these changes, CMS hopes to empower patients, increase competition, and foster innovation in the home health space.

Read on to learn how the PDGM will affect home care and how you can prepare.
