PDPM Primary Diagnosis Category: Major Joint Replacement and Spinal Surgery

Presented on March 14, 2019

The new Medicare Patient Driven Payment Model (PDPM) is a significant change which will require in-depth, detailed training and planning. Each session in this series dives deeper into each element of the PDPM process and will provide the necessary coding instruction for each of those elements including how the ICD-10 codes fit into the PDPM clinical categories and drive reimbursement.

  • Outline the impact of the primary diagnosis clinical category of Major Joint Replacement or Spinal Surgery for PDPM.
  • Describe how a surgical procedure during the qualifying hospital stay impacts clinical category assignment under PDPM.

  • Identify the steps for correct coding for some common SNF diagnoses from this Primary Diagnosis Clinical Category.
