Medicare Health Outcomes Survey 2012 to 2014

$199 / year

Medicare HOS (Health Outcomes Survey) Public Use data files (PUFs) contain the majority of the survey items collected on the HOS instrument (excluding beneficiary identifying information) as well as selected additional administrative variables. PUFs are used for research purposes and to facilitate the dissemination of data collected by the Medicare HOS project for additional research, PUFs have been created for each cohort (combined baseline and two year follow up) of data.

Complexity

The Medicare HOS is the first patient-reported outcomes measure used in Medicare managed care. The goal of the Medicare HOS program is to gather valid and reliable clinically meaningful data that have many uses, such as for targeting quality improvement activities and resources; monitoring health plan performance and rewarding top-performing health plans; helping beneficiaries make informed healthcare choices; and advancing the science of functional health outcomes measurement. Managed care plans with Medicare Advantage (MA) contracts must participate.

Each spring a random sample of Medicare beneficiaries is drawn and surveyed from each participating Medicare Advantage Organization (MAO) that has a minimum of 500 enrollees (i.e., a survey is administered to a different baseline cohort, or group, each year). Two years later, the baseline respondents are surveyed again (i.e., follow up measurement). Cohort 1 was surveyed in 1998 and was resurveyed in 2000. Cohort 2 was surveyed in 1999 and was resurveyed in 2001, and so on. During the current HOS administration (2016 Round 19), Cohort 19 is surveyed and Cohort 17 is resurveyed using HOS 3.0. For data collection years 1998-2006, the MAO sample size was one thousand. Effective 2007, the MAO sample size was increased to twelve hundred.

The PUFs files have been constructed in accordance with current CMS and Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) policies and other applicable statutes and laws. All identifying information has been excluded from the files, and demographic categories have been aggregated such that identification of any given individual is not possible.

Two distinct categories of PUFs have been generated:
1.Baseline PUFs contain the data collected during a given baseline survey administration.
2.Analytic PUFs contain the merged baseline and follow up files as well as supplemental variables.

– 2014 COHORT 15 BASELINE SAMPLING METHODOLOGY
The HOS measure is administered to a randomly selected sample of individuals at baseline from each MAO. The sampling methodology is dependent upon the size of a plan’s population.
– MAOs with fewer than 500 members enrolled were not required to report HOS.
– For MAOs with 500 to 1,200 members, all eligible members were included in the sample.
– For MAOs with more than 1,200 members and less than 3,000 members, a simple random sample of 1,200 members was selected for the baseline survey.
– For MAOs with 3,000 or more members, members who responded to the previous year’s baseline survey were excluded from the random sample of 1,200 for the current year.
– Members were defined as eligible if they were 18 years or older on the date the sample was drawn. The six months enrollment requirement was waived beginning in 2009, and members with End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) were no longer excluded from the sampling beginning in 2010.

– 2014 COHPRT 15 FOLLOW UP SAMPLING METHODOLOGY
CMS identified beneficiaries from the 2012 Cohort 15 Baseline sample who were eligible for remeasurement as follows:
– Beneficiaries were eligible for remeasurement if they had sufficient data to derive physical health or mental health summary scores at baseline and remained in the same MAO at follow up.
– Beneficiaries were excluded if they disenrolled from their MAO or were deceased subsequent to the baseline survey. Although deceased beneficiaries were excluded from the follow up sample, CMS includes deceased baseline respondents when calculating the HOS performance measurement results.

– SURVEY ADMINISTRATION
– MAOs contracted with an NCQA-Certified survey vendor to administer the survey following the protocol specified in the HEDIS 2012, Volume 6, Specifications for the Medicare Health Outcomes Survey Manual. The manual details the procedures to be followed during both mail and telephone phases of the protocol.
– The mail component of the survey used a standardized questionnaire, survey letters, and prenotification postcards. Sample respondents completed the HOS in English, Spanish or Chinese language versions of the mail survey.
– Survey vendors attempted telephone follow up in English or Spanish (with at least six attempts) in those instances when beneficiaries failed to respond after the second mail survey or returned an incomplete mail survey in order to obtain missing responses. A standardized version of a Computer Assisted Telephone Interviewing (CATI) script was used to collect telephone interview data for the survey.
– Survey vendors perform data cleaning, and follow up with survey respondents, as necessary.
