UASI Training for FY2020 MS-DRG Updates

The annual updates to the ICD-10 and MS-DRG systems have been finalized, effective October 1. The ICD-10 and MS-DRG updates reflect the final Hospital Inpatient Prospective Payment System (IPPS) rule for the fiscal year 2020. You can see the details on IPPS here.

Highlights of the MS-DRG changes include:

  • Reassignment of 4 ICD-10-PCS codes for HCT procedures specifying autologous cord blood stem cell as the donor source from MS-DRG 014 to MS-DRGs 016 and 017.
  • 46 ICD-10-PCS procedure codes that do not describe the dilation of a carotid artery with intraluminal device have been removed from MS-DRGs 034, 035 and 036.
  • Many more!

The UASI training video provides full details.

This is the third and final one-hour video training course we will be sharing. The first covered ICD-10-CM, and the second covered ICD-10-PCS. Outpatient coders only need ICD-10-CM training, while inpatient coders need all three.
