-3802 Format Fatal Formatting of Alphanumeric Text Items That Can Contain Dashes, Spaces, Ampersands, and Other Special Characters:
If this item is not equal to one of the special values (if any) that are listed in the Item Values table of the Detailed Data Specifications Report, then it must contain a text string. This text string may contain only the following characters:
a) The numeric characters: [0] through [9].
b) The letters [A] through [Z] and [a] through [z].
c) The character [-].
d) The following special characters:
[&] (ampersand)
[@] (at sign)
['] (single quote)
[/] (forward slash)
[+] (plus sign)
[,] (comma)
[.] (period)
[_] (underscore)
e) Embedded spaces (spaces surrounded by any of the characters listed above). For example, [LEGAL TEXT] would be allowed.
-3616 Consistency Warning If the item is active and contains a value, the value should be consistent with all of the MDS items used in the RUGs classification (i.e., the RUGs calculation should be correct).

For items Z0100A, Z0100B, and Z0100C, and for items Z0150A and Z0150B, the submission system will recalculate the HIPPS code, the RUG version code, and, for Z0100C, the short stay indicator, and issue a warning if the recalculated values do not match the submitted values.

For items Z0200A, Z0200B, Z0250A, and Z0250B, the submission system will recalculate the submitted RUGs code and RUG version code if the State is using a CMS supported RUG model. A warning will be issued if the recalculated codes do not match the submitted codes.

Supplemental Information
