        • 100% of Medicare enrollees age 65-99 who died during the measurement year with full Part A entitlement and no HMO enrollment during the measurement period. Age, gender, race, and eligibility are determined using the Denominator file.

        • Inpatient reimbursements ($) within six months of the death date in the MedPAR file. For stays that began prior to the six-month period before the death date, only the portion of the event that occurred within the six-month window is used. ICU spending represents Medicare allowed charges, rather than reimbursements. ICU charges are determined by the following indicators in the MedPAR claim: ICAREAMT (intensive care charge amount), CRNRYAMT (coronary care charge amount).

        • ADJUSTMENTS:
        • Rates are adjusted for age, sex and race using the indirect method, using the U.S. Medicare decedent population as the standard. Gender-specific rates are age and race adjusted; race-specific rates are age and sex adjusted.
