General Notes
 

PAY3_X retains the expected tertiary payer as provided by the data source. The original values have not been recoded into uniform HCUP values and are source-specific. There are no HCUP data elements that contain uniformly coded information about the expected tertiary payer.


Because the coding of expected primary and tertiary payer is the same, information on the coding of PAY3_X is available under the note for expected primary payer (PAY1).
