        • FOOTNOTES:
        • Overall spending measures were calculated for the 100% sample files (MedPAR, Home Health Agency, Hospice and DME), the Part B file, and the Outpatient file, and were adjusted for differences in age, sex, race, and primary chronic diagnosis. Payments were then partitioned into components based on the proportional distribution of the crude component spending rates. The Part B (physician) spending that occurred at each site of care (determined using the place of service code on the Part B claim) was added to the facility component to determine spending in each sector.

The study population includes beneficiaries with one of nine chronic conditions who were enrolled in traditional (fee-for-service) Medicare and died during the measurement period. To allow for two years of follow-back for all patients, the population is restricted to those whose age on the date of death was 67 to 99 years, and to those having full Part A and Part B entitlement throughout the last two years of life. Persons enrolled in managed care organizations were excluded from the analysis. For the hospital-specific analyses, patients had to be hospitalized for chronic illness at least once during their last two years of life to be included. For regional analyses, all patients diagnosed with a chronic illness were included.

        • ADJUSTMENTS:
        • Rates are adjusted for age, sex, race, primary chronic condition, and the presence of more than one chronic condition using ordinary least squares regression.
