IHPI Data & Methods Hub

The IHPI Data Hub houses many types of Medicare and Medicaid data. Medicare covers about 55 million aged and disabled populations while Medicaid covers low-income populations. This seminar provides an introduction to these two types of insurance. A variety of claims data files are available to IHPI members spanning 1999-2014. In this presentation, we will provide a brief introduction to Medicare and Medicaid; cover the data structures and file layouts; and discuss advantages and limitations of these data. We will also discuss the process for getting data use agreements for these data.
