Methodology

  • Divide the count of beneficiaries who are Hispanic by the count of Medicare FFS beneficiaries.
  • Medicare FFS beneficiaries limited to those who (a) have no months of HMO enrollment and (b) have both Part A and Part B for whatever portion of the year that they are covered by FFS Medicare (i.e., they have no months of A-only or B-only coverage).
  • Beneficiary age group (< 65 and 65+ ) was determined using the age of the individual at the end of the reference year or the individual's age at the time of death.

Data Source(s)

  • Chronic Condition Data Warehouse (CCW)

    Description The Chronic Condition Data Warehouse (CCW) is a research database designed to (1) identify areas for improving the quality of care provided to chronically ill Medicare beneficiaries; (2) identify ways to reduce program spending; and (3) make current Medicare data more readily available to researchers studying chronic illness in the Medicare population. The CCW contains fee-for-service institutional and non-institutional claims, enrollment/eligibility, and assessment data from 1999 forward for a random 5% sample of Medicare beneficiaries (100% for 2005 forward). The data are linked by a unique, unidentifiable beneficiary key, which allows researchers to analyze information across the continuum of care.
