12VAC5-217-40. Options for Submission.

Each inpatient hospital shall submit the patient level data to the board for processing and verification. If data is submitted in this fashion, the board will transmit it to the nonprofit organization along with any fees submitted by the hospital to the board for the processing and verification of such data.

As an alternative to submitting the patient level data to the board, an inpatient hospital may submit the patient level data to the office of the nonprofit organization for processing and verification.

If a hospital chooses this alternative it shall notify the board and the nonprofit organization of its intent to follow this procedure.

In lieu of submitting the patient level data to the board or to the nonprofit organization, an inpatient hospital may submit already processed, verified data to the nonprofit organization. If an inpatient hospital chooses this alternative for submission of patient level data, it shall notify the board and the nonprofit organization of its intent to utilize this procedure.

If an inpatient hospital decides to change the option it has chosen, it shall notify the board of its decision 30 days prior to the due date for the next submission of patient level data.
