Only the values listed in the "Item Values" table of the Detailed Data Specifications Report may be submitted for this item. The submitted value must be greater than or equal to the minimum value listed in the table and less than or equal to the maximum value listed in the table, or it must match one of the remaining special values (if any) that are listed in the table. The length of the submitted value must not exceed the allowed maximum length for the item. Signed numbers (with a leading plus or minus sign) will not be accepted.
-3680 Format Fatal Formatting of Integer Numeric Items:
Only integer values and the special values (if any) that are listed in the "Item Values" table of the Detailed Data Specifications Report will be accepted for this item. Leading zeroes may be included or omitted from the submitted value as long as the resulting length of the string does not exceed the allowed maximum length for the item. A decimal point and decimal values may not be included.

The following examples are allowable if the value to be submitted is equal to [1] and the maximum length is equal to 2: [1], [01]. The following values are NOT allowed and will lead to a fatal error: [1.], [1.0], [01.], [01.0], [1.1], [01.1], [1.01].
-3846 Consistency Fatal Consistency between therapy days within types of therapy and distinct days across types of therapy.

Item O0420 must conform with the following rules:

a) If O0400A4, O0400B4, and O0400C4 are all equal to [-], then O0420 must equal [-].

b) If O0420 is not equal to [-], then both of the following rules apply:

---b1) O0420 must contain a value that is greater than or equal to the largest value in O0400A4, O0400B4, and O0400C4. When determining this value, if any of the items O0400A4, O0400B4, and O0400C4 is coded with [-,^], count the number of days for that item as zero.

---b2) O0420 must contain a value that is less than or equal to sum of the days in O0400A4, O0400B4, and O0400C4. When computing this sum, if any of the items O0400A4, O0400B4, and O0400C4 is coded with [-,^], count the number of days for that item as zero.
-3856 Consistency Fatal If the value of O0420=[1-7], then the following rule applies:

The number of distinct calendar days of therapy (O0420) cannot be greater than the latest therapy end date minus the earliest therapy start date plus 1, where the latest and earliest therapy start dates are defined as follows:

a) The latest therapy end date is defined as the largest date contained in O0400A6, O0400B6, and O0400C6, excluding any of these items that contain [-,^]. If any of these items contains [--------], then the latest therapy end date is equal to A2300 (ARD).

b) The earliest start date is defined as the smallest date contained in O0400A5, O0400B5, or O0400C5, excluding any of these items that contain [-,^].
