    I have an account (s) that are affected by EAPG ( enhanced ambulatory payment group) new system of grouping procedure codes for nine states by 3M for Medicaid and some Commercial Payers. Have you heard of this? Do you know what criteria is being used for products? Do you have any contacts at 3 M for denied/ underpaid claims? Education or training?
    Is AAPC doing any research / programs on EAPG?
    Thank you
    Dianne
