Co-morbidity

Prevalence and Medicare spending are presented for chronic condition co-morbidity. Co-morbidity is illustrated by the combinations of the 17 chronic conditions. Dyads represent the combinations of two chronic conditions among Medicare beneficiaries with at least two of the conditions. There are 136 dyads. Triads represent the combinations of three chronic conditions among Medicare beneficiaries with at least three of the conditions. There are 680 triads.

The data are available in two Excel files formats. The “Reports” allow users allow users to view combinations for selected specific conditions. The corresponding “Tables” are traditional excel files that show all combinations and can be exported into other programs.
