Encounter Data Processing Tier 2 - Plan Testing
CMS would like to remind MAOs and other entities that the Encounter Data Processing System (EDPS) began Tier 2- Plan Testing on March 15, 2012. Tier 2 testing allows MAOs and other entities to send up to 2,000 additional encounters to provide them with an opportunity to test a more inclusive sampling of their data.
MAOs and other entities are reminded:
- End-to-End system certification does not have to be complete prior to initiating Tier 2- Plan Testing.
- The encounters submitted for Tier 2 testing must comply with the TR3, CMS edits spreadsheet and Encounter Data Companion Guide.
If you have questions contact the CSSC by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by telephone at 1-877-534-2772.
