Minnesota Statutes § 176.1362 provides that the maximum payment for most workers' compensation inpatient hospital services is 200% of the amount calculated under the Medicare diagnosis-related group (DRG) system.

For discharges on or after Oct. 1, 2021, payment for inpatient services, articles and supplies must be calculated using the inpatient PPS Web Pricer available on Medicare's website. Instructions for using the inpatient PPS Web Pricer are available below.
