      • FOOTNOTES:
      • Mammography rates were not adjusted; because the measure is already restricted by age and sex, statistical adjustments to correct for underlying population differences are not relevant.

      • The denominator comprised female Medicare beneficiaries age 75-99 on January 1, 2012 who were Parts A and B eligible and not enrolled in risk-bearing HMOs at any time during the year.

      • Screening mammograms were defined as any, but only one occurrence per patient during 2012 of the following codes: ICD-9 diagnosis codes V76.11, V76.12 with CPT codes 77052, 77057, G0202.
