PUBMMX
Monthly public health insurance coverage from any source (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, PUBMMX is a set of constructed monthly summary health insurance variables indicating whether they have any public health insurance in a given calendar month. Persons identified as covered by public insurance are those reporting coverage under TRICARE (TRIMMX), Medicare (MCMM), Medicaid or SCHIP (MAMMX), or other public hospital/physician programs (OPAMM and OPBMM). Persons covered only by state-specific programs that did not provide comprehensive coverage (STAMM) were not considered to have public coverage when constructing the PUBMMX variables. By adding PUBMMX to your data cart, you are in effect adding 12 monthly health insurance coverage variables (PUBJAX-PUBDEX), one variable for each calendar month.
