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

        • NUMERATOR DEFINITION:
        • Numerator counts are based on ICD-9-CM diagnosis codes. Surgical codes are usually excluded to ensure that the admission was for a medical condition. Congestive Heart Failure (CHF): 428xx, 402.01, 402.11, 402.91, 518.4x: excl. sx 00.66, 36.1x, 37.5x, or 37.7x.

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