The error was that the workers' compensation factor for each hospital was not calculated. The figure listed was the current Medicare factor for each hospital multiplied by 150 percent. Payments made after Jan. 1 that relied on the schedule with the error should be reviewed based on the new, corrected schedule. New versions of the schedule are available on the court's website and the previous incorrect version was removed. For more information, visit www.wcc.ne.gov/medical/fs_drg.aspx.
