Ambulatory patient group (APG)

The Medicare program’s prospective payment system for outpatient services and procedures. Each APG is a classified medical service or procedure. Unlike diagnosis related group (DRG) reimbursement for inpatient care, where medical events are condensed into one diagnostic related group, an outpatient visit can combine several different APGs.
