Are all MAO-002 accepted encounter data records included in MAO-004 reports?
CMS reports almost all MAO-002 accepted records on the Phase III version 3 MAO-004 reports. The very few submissions that are not processed are the instances when CMS cannot determine the intention of the submitter. Diagnoses on these records are also not included in the model run processes.
