Source: cms.gov

The PC Pricer is a tool used to estimate Medicare PPS payments. The final payment may not be precise to how payments are determined in the Medicare claims processing system due to the fact that some data is factored in the PC Pricer payment amount that is paid by Medicare via provider cost reports.
