MAMMX
Monthly Medicaid/SCHIP health insurance coverage (edited)

Description

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

For all persons, MAMMX is a set of edited monthly health insurance variables indicating whether they have Medicaid and/or SCHIP coverage in a given calendar month. By adding MAMMX to your data cart, you are in effect adding 12 monthly health insurance coverage variables (MAJAX-MADEX), one variable for each calendar month. The Medicaid/SCHIP variables have been edited to include persons who paid nothing for their other public hospital/physician insurance when such coverage was through a Medicaid HMO or reported to include some other managed care characteristics.

Detail about Insurance Editing

 

In Rounds 2, 3, 4, and 5, insurance that was in effect at the previous round's interview date was reviewed with the respondent. Most of the insurance variables have been logically edited to address issues that arose during such reviews in Rounds 2, 3, 4, and 5. Edits address issues of missing data on the time period of coverage that was either reviewed or initially reported in a given round.
