Summary of Changes: This change adds a new TED pricing rate code of 'DD' (Discounted DRG). Addition of this code will allow the government to identify claims reimbursed at a discounted DRG rate and will correct a problem identified with Aug 2002 TSM Change 82. Aug 2002 TSM, Change 82 implemented a change to the interim hospital billing TED submission requirements and allowed interim-interim and interim-final billings, with the exception of interim billings reimbursed under DRG or Home Health Agency (HHA) payment methodology, as unique TED records rather than as adjustments to the TED record for the initial billing.
