Description of IRISV3 Program
(Version 3.1 Issued June 3, 1999 With August 2012 Updates to Medical School and Residency Type Code Files)
This data entry/import program is used by providers to create an IRIS diskette/CD with two files (master and assignment) in dBASE file format. Providers have a choice of keying in resident data or importing master and assignment files that were created outside of the IRISV3 program or were previously created by IRISV3. An IRIS diskette/CD is created for each provider cost reporting period, and a copy of the IRIS diskette/CD that has passed all edits in the IRISEDV3 program is mailed to the provider's servicing Fiscal Intermediary (FI)/Medicare Administrative Contractor (MAC) at the same time the provider's Medicare cost report is due.
Description of IRISEDV3 Program
(Version 1.1 Issued October 2003 With August 2012 Updates to Medical School and Residency Type Code Files)
This edit only program is used by providers and their servicing FIs/MACs to ensure that files on IRIS diskettes/CDs (those produced by IRISV3 or those created with outside software) pass all IRIS system edits. Errors that are revealed by IRISEDV3 for inaccurate or incomplete resident data cannot be corrected in IRISEDV3. Providers have the sole responsibility for correcting these errors in the IRIS diskette/CD files, and these errors must be corrected outside of the IRISEDV3 program.
Providers are to run this program again on these corrected files to ensure that their IRIS diskettes/CDs pass all IRIS system edits. FIs/MACs likewise are to use IRISEDV3 on their copies of IRIS diskettes/CDs from providers to also ensure that these diskettes/CDs pass all IRIS system edits.
