Chronic Conditions Chartbook: 2011 Edition
The 2011 edition of the chartbook “Chronic Conditions among Medicare Beneficiaries” was published in December 2011. The data used in this report come from the 2008 CMS administrative claims data for 100 percent of Medicare beneficiaries enrolled in the fee-for-service (FFS) program, which are available from the CMS Chronic Condition Data Warehouse (www.ccwdata.org). The chartbook includes three sections: Section 1: Demographics and Prevalence, Section 2: Medicare Service Utilization and Section 3: Medicare Spending.
