Click here for full topic list.
Access to Health Care
Description: Access to health care information is collected in the Access to Care (AC) section of the MEPS-HC questionnaire. Topics include family members' origin and preferred languages, family members' usual source of care, characteristics of the usual source of health care providers, satisfaction with and access to the usual source of health care provider, and access to medical treatment, dental treatment, and prescription medicines. In addition to the tables and publications below, person-level data files with access to health care variables can be downloaded for analysis.
Data tables: For tables specifically on access to health care estimates, go to Access to Care Tables. Also visit the Tables 3 series for all years and the Table 4 series for 2000 and 2001 of the Quality of Care Tables. All access to care related tables are located in the HC Summary Data Tables section.
Analytic tools: No access to care variables are available with the MEPSnet query tools at this time.
