HICHAMPANY
Has CHAMPUS, TRICARE, or CHAMP-VA insurance

Description

[ PRELIMINARY VARIABLE: Variable description may change once we confirm the universe and assess the comparability of this variable over time. ]

For all persons, HICHAMPANY is an annual summary variable that indicates whether the person had TRICARE health insurance coverage for at least one day during the calendar year (for 2000-forward) and CHAMPUS health insurance coverage for at least one day during the calendar year (for 1996-1999). TRICARE (formerly, CHAMPUS) is a Department of Defense regionally-managed health care program that provides comprehensive coverage for active duty US military personnel, military retirees, their dependents and survivors.

This variable was constructed by AHRQ staff based on the values of the corresponding 12 month-by-month TRICARE health insurance coverage variables (TRIJAX-TRIDEX) for 2000-forward and the corresponding 12 month-by-month CHAMPUS health insurance coverage variables for 1996-1999 (not yet available through IPUMS MEPS).
