APR-DRG Grouper 38 Changes Now Available Effective for Dates of Discharge On or After April 1, 2022

Last updated on 4/14/2022

Effective for dates of discharge on or after April 1, 2022, Texas Medicaid and the Children with Special Health Care Needs (CSHCN) Services Program will map the All Patient Refined-Diagnosis Related Groups (APR-DRG) system to version 39.1 and process inpatient claims using Grouper version 38 logic and relative weights.

Statistical information about the APR-DRG payment system, which includes relative weights, mean lengths of stay, and day thresholds, can be found on the Texas Medicaid Acute Care Hospital Reimbursement webpage.

Impacted claims with dates of discharge on or after April 1, 2022, will be reprocessed as necessary to capture APR-DRG changes.
