CMS Updates PDPM Grouper

CMS has posted an update to the PDPM Grouper DLL, as v1.0009, to add support for new ICD-10 codes that may be used for assessments with target dates on or after 1/1/2021.

The posting notice lists those as: Z11.52, Z20.822, Z86.16, M35.81, M35.89 and J12.82.

It notes that codes M35.81 and M35.89 replace code M35.8, which should no longer be used on assessments with target date on or after 1/1/2021.

They’ve also released new lookup files for allowable ICD-10 codes for item I0020B, as of 1/1/2021.

New Group will be included in the upcoming ADL Update.
