Fiscal Intermediary Shared System (FISS) - Create Utility to Update Reason Code File to Remove Deleted Codes

The purpose of this Change Request (CR) is to implement changes in FISS to allow batch deletes on the FISS reason code file where the code has been removed and the reason code is not valid. FISS has done extensive research on the reason code file and found a large number of records that can be deleted. Manual removal of the records is possible using the PF12 delete function but would require FISS and the Medicare Administrative Contractors (MACs) to make mass updates in every production/test region and would require a large manual effort.
