FINAL_ASSIGN

0/1 flag; =1 if beneficiary was assigned in final reconciliation period (from final reconciliation assignment tables in IDR)  based on the ACO's certified participant list used in financial reconciliation. Note that for  Prospective Assignment ACOs the prospectively assigned beneficiaries are the same for all periods with the exception of beneficiaries that have met exclusion criteria for one or more reasons during the performance year. As a result, the number of assigned beneficiaries for Prospective Assignment ACOs will be smaller for each consecutive assignment period.
