Comments

USER NOTE: FOR TOS = 4 (INPATIENT PSYCHIATRIC FACILITY SERVICES FOR INDIVIDUALS UNDER THE AGE OF 21), VALUE IS USUALLY >= 0. FOR A SMALL NUMBER OF CLAIMS, VALUE MAY BE < 0. THIS IS BECAUSE SOME LONG-TERM CARE SERVICES ARE PAID PROSPECTIVELY (E.G. AT THE BEGINNING OF A MONTH) AND MSIS ADJUSTMENT RECORDS MAY HAVE VALUE < 0, WHICH CAN PRODUCE A FINAL RESULT AFTER ADJUSTMENT WITH VALUE < 0. FOR OTHER TYPES OF SERVICE (TOS NOT = 4), VALUE = 0.

SOURCE: MSIS CLAIMS FILE: 'MEDICAID-COVERED-INPATIENT-DAYS'.

EDIT-RULES: MAX VALUE IS EDITED TO VALUE <= 998, IF MSIS VALUE = 99999 OR 88888, MSIS VALUE IS RESET TO VALUE = 0.
