BSA Skilled Nursing Facility Beneficiary PUF

$79 / year

This dataset contains the Basic Stand Alone (BSA) Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) Public Use File (PUF) data, based on information from Medicare SNF claims. Each record is a beneficiary who had at least one SNF claim from a random 5% sample of Medicare beneficiaries.

Complexity

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) BSA SNF dataset (PUF) originates from a 5% simple random sample of beneficiaries drawn (without replacement) from the 100% Beneficiary Summary File for the reference year. The sample that is used for the CMS BSA SNF Beneficiary PUF is disjoint from the existing 5% CMS research sample in the sense that there is no overlap in terms of the beneficiaries in the CMS BSA SNF Beneficiary dataset (PUF) and the 5% CMS research sample. It is also disjoint from other CMS BSA Public Use Files (i.e., CMS 2008 Inpatient Claims PUF, CMS 2008 DME Line Items PUF, CMS 2008 PDE PUF, CMS 2008 Hospice Beneficiary PUF, CMS 2008 Outpatient Procedures PUF, CMS 2008 HHA Beneficiary PUF, and CMS 2008 Carrier Line Items PUF) that have been released so far. This property prevents users from linking data across multiple files for identification purposes.
