Master the new MS-DRG codes changes as well as the New Technology Add-On Payment (NTAP) updates for 2020.
The Inpatient Prospective Payment System (IPPS) proposed rule for fiscal year 2020 had many changes for the Medicare Severity Diagnosis Related Groups (MS-DRGs) methodology. There were more than 20 changes and among those were shifts of procedure codes, deletion of procedure codes, shifting of diagnoses, deleting two MS-DRGs, adding two MS-DRGs, and more. Some of the shifts are from MS-DRGs 981-983 and 987-989 to MS-DRGs where the diagnosis and procedures match. In addition to changes in the methodology, there are some changes to CC/MCC designations. How these changes could impact the MS-DRG assignments at your facility financially has the potential to be a serious issue.
