Facility Automation of the MDS Crosswalks to the 672 and 802 Forms (9/25/2001):

Information included on the 672 and 802 forms is limited to residents on Medicare and/or Medicaid certified units. Therefore, MDS information crosswalked to the 672 and 802 Forms is also limited to MDS assessments performed for residents while on a certified unit. The SUB_REQ field being implemented on 11/26/2001, for MDS records submitted by the facility to the state, will allow selection of the appropriate certified-unit MDS assessments. SUB_REQ has a value of 3 for certified units and a value of 1 or 2 for non-certified units. MDS crosswalks to the 672 and 802 Forms must be limited to MDS assessments with SUB_REQ = 3. See data specifications for the SUB_REQ field in Downloads below.
