*In October 2007, the DRG system was drastically changed by the federal government and is now known as the MS-DRG system.  [MS-DRG = Medicare Severity Diagnosis Related Groups].   Assignment to one of the new MS-DRGs is intended to be more closely associated with the severity of the patientís condition. There is no one-to-one crosswalk from the DRG system to the new MS-DRG system.  Please see the MS-DRG_ID file for the new definitions. 

**The groupings for payers have changed from those in prior years due to the adoption of the UB-04 billing form in place of the UB-92 approximately mid-2007.  Please see the PAYER1_ID_2008 file for the current  year's codes.
