MEPS HC-175: 2015 Full Year Medical Organizations Survey Preliminary file (HC-175 replaced by HC-182)
Release date: February 2017

Released as an ASCII file (with related SAS, SPSS, and STATA programming statements) and a SAS transport dataset, this public use dataset contains data on usual source of care provider characteristics for 7,161 sample persons whose providers were respondents to the 2015 MEPS MOS. This file includes the following variables: survey administration, organizational characteristics, case management and use of clinical quality data, and financial arrangements. These data can be linked to MEPS sample respondents in the 2015 Full Year Population Characteristics File to enable analyses at the person-level using characteristics of provider practices. This project was funded in part by a grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.

Caution: Users should note that this is a preliminary file that will be reissued at a future date, to be determined, with revisions to the weight and some additional links of providers to MEPS sampled persons.
