One reimbursement method that health plans can use for hospitals is the ambulatory payment classifications (APCs) method. APCs bear a resemblance to the diagnosis-related groups (DRGs) method of reimbursement.
However, when comparing APCs and DRGs, one of the primary differences between the two methods is that only the APC method:

A. is typically used for outpatient care
B. assigns a single code for treatment
C. applies to treatment received during an entire hospital stay
D. is considered to be a retrospective payment system
