Beginning September 1, 2012, Texas Medicaid will adopt an All Patient
Refined – Diagnosis Related Groups (APR-DRG) payment system, which will replace the
MS-DRG Inpatient Hospital Prospective Payment System (PPS) that is currently in
use. The APR-DRG methodology focuses on all Medicaid client populations and
addresses patient severity of illness and patient risk of mortality in addition
to patient resource intensity.
