The All-Patient Diagnosis Related Group (AP-DRG) is a primary component of health care claims reimbursement determination in the state of New York and selected other states in the U.S. The AP-DRG specification is also used extensively for Worker’s Comp, No-Fault and Medicaid claims. The AP-DRG specifications are produced and maintained by the New York State Department of Health and 3M Corporation. Patient information including birth date, sex, and discharge status along with detail diagnosis and procedure code data from the patient record are processed through a complex algorithm to calculate the AP-DRG. The AP-DRG provides a greater degree of specificity than the CMS DRG and provides more detail for neonatal and some major disease categories.
