This public use data file contains the relative risk adjusted scores for Panels 7 through 14 of the 2002-2009 Medical Expenditure Panel Survey Household Component (MEPS HC). Released as an ASCII file with SAS, SPSS, and STATA programming statements and in SAS transport format, this public use file contains person-level records with six relative risk scores. Each score is based on one of two modeling frameworks (age/sex or the hierarchical condition categories-HCC) for three different insurance categories (Medicare, privately insured, or Medicaid). Note that HC-140 overlaps the time frame of HC-092 (1996-2004 Risk Adjustment Scores File).
