CMS plans limited changes to CCs in fiscal year (FY) 2012, but proposes new MS-DRGs for excisional debridement as well as an additional hospital-acquired condition (HAC). These and other changes are part of the inpatient prospective payment system (IPPS) proposed rule posted April 19. The proposals posted in April, however, did not contain a complete list of coding changes. Additional codes were not released until June 10. Comments on the proposed changes were due to CMS by June 20.

As of press time, the ACDIS advisory board had been in the process of reviewing the changes and providing comment to the agency. A final version of ACDIS’ comments will be available soon.
