thank so much

Are you talking about DRG or DGR? What do the abbreviations stand for?
I suspect that Medicare reimbursement methodology is not a subject that our staff experts are familiar with. 
3.0970 x 1500

can anyone please assist me, I need the anwser to this question .

how to calculate DRG reimbursement and it said:
1. Find the group code that applies to the specific medical treatment provided using the DRG coding table.
2. Match the group code with the appropriate weight on the weight table.
3. Multiply the DRG weight by the Standard Base Rate the hospital charges for any HMO network member. The result will be the appropriate amount of the claim.
