DRGs are a standard way to categorize patients based on primary diagnosis, and are used by CMS to pay hospitals for inpatient care of Medicare patients.  Our list is available here.  This list uses the most recent data published by CMS on their website, for federal fiscal year 2016, and includes those DRGs where CMH has at least 11 Medicare cases during the year.  In addition to showing the average price by DRG for CMH, the statewide average for Missouri hospitals and the national average for the United States are also shown for comparison purposes.
