Confidence Intervals for Fleiss Kappa using the MAGREE or MKAPPA Macro

Is anyone aware of a way to get the 95% confidence intervals for Fleiss Kappa using the SAS MAGREE macro or the MKAPPA macro provided by Chen et all in their paper "A Macro to Calculate Kappa Statistics for Categorizations by Multiple Raters"?  

 

This is an example of my output using the MAGREE Macro:

 

y            Kappa        Standard Errror            z               Prob >Z

1              0.3             0.14907                   2.01246        0.0221

2              0.3             0.14907                   2.01246        0.0221

Overall     0.3             0.14907                   2.01246        0.0221

 

And my output using the MKAPPA macro: 

 

Kappa        Standard Errror             Prob >Z

 0.3             0.14907                         0.022086

 

Thanks in advance!
