Chronic Conditions among Medicare Beneficiaries was prepared by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and created to provide an overview of chronic conditions among Medicare beneficiaries. The chartbook highlights the prevalence of chronic conditions among Medicare beneficiaries and the impact of chronic conditions on Medicare service utilization and spending. The Portable Document File (.PDF) format allows for online viewing and printing of the entire chartbook, the data tables provide spreadsheets with the underlying data, and the presentation includes all the chartbook figures for print or download.
There are two versions of the chartbook: the 2011 edition includes data for 2008 and the 2012 edition includes data for 2010.
