The Mississippi Division of Medicaid will adopt V.31 of the 3M Health
Information System APR-DRG Grouper and V.31 of the Health Care
Acquired Conditions (HCAC) utility for payment of hospital inpatient
claims for discharges on or after July 1, 2014. APR-DRG parameters
may also change effective for hospital inpatient discharges on or after
July 1, 2014.
Hospitals are not required to purchase 3M software for payment of
claims; however, all hospitals that have purchased the 3M software
should ensure their internal systems are updated to reflect all changes
that occur for hospital discharges beginning on or after July 1, 2014.
Hospitals will be notified of all information related to these changes
and training session dates via e-mail, the DOM website
Late Breaking News, and RA Banner Messages.
