Subject: Implementation of the All-Patient Refined Diagnosis Related Group version 35

On March 15, 2018, the Department of Human Services (The Department) will replace All-Patient Refined Diagnosis Related Group (APR-DRG) version 34 with version 35 for inpatient Fee-for-Service claims with discharge dates of service on or after October 1, 2017. The purpose of this update is to implement the most current and first available APR-DRG version designed specifically for use with the October 2017 ICD-10 code set. The Department will reprocess claims that were processed under APR-DRG version 34 for discharge dates of service October 1, 2017 through March 15, 2018 at a later date.
Relative values for use with APR-DRG version 35 effective October 1, 2017 are anticipated to be posted on The Department's website the week of March 15, 2018. There has been no change in computation methodology for relative values. This methodology remains the same as previously released for APR-DRG version 34.
