Due to the postponement of the Regional Care Organizations and budget uncertainty, the October 1, 2016, implementation date for APR-DRG pricing for hospital inpatient stays will be delayed.  The Alabama Medicaid Agency is working to determine a new implementation date.  Once determined, a subsequent Provider Alert will announce the new date.
