Lung & Liver Transplant: Final DRG Liver
Can anyone explain this scenario?
A patient admitted undergoes both a Liver Transplant and a single Right lung transplant in the same admission. The final DRG is for the Liver Transplant. However, the Lung transplant has a higher RW, higher GMLOS.
Why does the Liver show as the correct DRG?
I cannot find anything in Coding Guidelines and just starting my search on CMS.gov.
