What is the Medicare Current Beneficiary Survey Fall 2020 COVID-19 Data Snapshot?
Our MCBS Fall 2020 COVID-19 Data Snapshot (PDF) presents information on Medicare beneficiaries experiences with the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Data Snapshot is based on preliminary data from the Fall 2020 MCBS COVID-19 Supplement, a nationally representative, cross-sectional telephone survey of Medicare beneficiaries focused on gathering information about their experiences with the COVID-19 pandemic.
These data are complemented by additional MCBS interview data on beneficiaries’ health status and demographic information.
