A: Yes. CMS has published a DRG to MS-DRG crosswalk. Go to www.cms.hhs.gov/AcuteInpatientPPS/ and click on Acute Inpatient-Files for Download on the left side. Then scroll through the list of available files for the crosswalk.

Editor's note: This Q&A was adapted from an article in the October 2007 issue of Briefings on Coding Compliance Strategies. For more information, visit http://www.hcpro.com/content/76859.cfm.
