Understanding How This SAS Business Affects IRIS
CMS has always separated residents in Osteopathic programs from those in Allopathic programs by assigning different codes to the different types of “pathic.” Further, CMS has a standing policy that the program a resident starts training in should be preserved in the resident’s Master file (Not familiar with this “Master file” thing? See Technical Mumbo-Jumbo). For example, if a resident starts training in Family Medicine and decides after two years that they really want to be a surgeon, that resident’s CMS code in their Master file will always represent Family Medicine, even though the spend their final 3-4 years in surgery.
