Product type:
   Working Paper 19004
MEPS component:
   Medical Provider Component
Publication date:
   September 3, 2019
   A Medical Organization Survey (MOS), sponsored by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, was incorporated into both the 2015 and 2016 MEPS Medical Provider Component (MPC) data collection cycles. The MOS initiative has enabled researchers to expand analyses of MEPS data to incorporate the potential effect of physician practice characteristics on health care access, utilization, and expenditures among persons who saw their usual source of care. This working paper provides insight regarding the quality of the MOS data through descriptive analyses of data from practices that were in the sample and responded in both 2015 and 2016.
