Date Second Comprehensive Medication Review (CMR) received

SAS Name

This variable indicates the date the second Comprehensive Medication Review (CMR) with written summary in CMS standardized format was received. Note that for 2016+ this is the date of the last CMR review during the year, if more than one CMR was provided.


CMS created the MTM File from information submitted by Part D plan sponsors to CMS’s Health Plan Management System (HPMS).   

This field is only populated if the variable CMR_RECEIVED_NUM is greater than 1.  For 2013-2015, there are fields for five CMR dates, see variables (CMR_RECEIVED_DT1 - CMR_RECEIVED_DT5).  Note that for 2016+ there are only two CMR_RECEIVED_DT fields – one for the initial CMR (the field called CMR_RECEIVED_DT1) and one for the final date (this field).
