On Oct. 1, we’ll see a change in how Medicare reimburses for services at skilled nursing facilities, or SNFs. We’ve heard lots of questions about these changes from speech-language pathologists working in SNFs. So, we’re dedicating the entire second episode of ASHA Voices to this topic.
Listen in for a conversation about health care trends, patient outcomes, and the evolving role of clinicians in SNFs. We’ll hear from ASHA’s director of health care services and a panel of SLPs in leadership roles at rehab companies. We’ll discuss the challenges and opportunities they see in this time of change to a patient-driven payment model (PDPM).
“I think that a lot of SLPs who are suffering with maybe some symptoms of burnout in SNFs … I think that PDPM is gonna be refreshing in a sense. My hope is that SLPs will feel more empowered under PDPM, which is going to help everybody involved.”
