TOOLS FOR TOUGH TALK. Your agency's successful transition to the new Patient-Driven Groupings Model (PDGM) hinges on your relationship with the physician. A 30-day billing cycle means orders and the Plan of Care must be signed expediently. New clinicial groupings will require specific diagnoses rather than symptom codes such as "weakness" or "debility."
