There are currently three major versions of the DRG in use: basic DRGs, All Patient DRGs, and All Patient Refined DRGs.

The basic DRGs are. Managed Care: A system of healthcare delivery that aims to provide a generalized structure and focus when managing the use, access, cost, quality, and effectiveness of healthcare the patient to provider services.

Health Maintenance Organization: An organization that provides or arranges for coverage of designated health services needed by plan members for a fixed prepaid premium. Answer. Each APC is composed of services which are similar in clinical intensity, resource utilization and cost. All services (identified by submission of CMS' Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) codes on the hospital's UB 04 claim form) which are grouped under a specific APC result in an annually updated Medicare "prospective payment" for that particular APC.
