2022 APR-DRG system updated in Belgium
Since 2019, several low-cost and simple procedures in Belgium have been reimbursed not via individual INAMI fees but APR-DRG groups. This funding system is called “Low Variability Care”. On January 26, 2022, the list of APR-DRG groups and corresponding reimbursement amounts for 2022 was published.
Minor changes were introduced for 2022. DRG logic for APR-DRG groups related to the knee and hip replacement procedures was changed. Two more APR-DRG groups for each of these procedures were created. As of now, there are in total 61 APR-DRG groups instead of 57 in 2021.
