USCPRTYP
Type of provider seen at usual source of care

Description

For current RU members in rounds 2 and 4 with a usual source of care (USUALPL) whose provider is a person (USCPRFAC), USCPRTYP reports the type of provider the person sees as their usual source of care provider. Prior to 2003, persons could choose from a set list or provider types. Beginning in 2003, additional categories are included as needed based on verbatim responses. USCPRTYP is collected as part of the Access to Care supplement, which gathers information on usual source of care for all family members, characteristics of usual source of care health providers, and barriers family members have faced in obtaining needed health care.

In all years other than 1996, the question was asked of persons in rounds two and four of data collection. No persons participated in round four of data collection in 1996, given the MEPS panel design. Otherwise, there are no comparability issues.
