Supplementary notes

* Data for ACS, asthma, hypertension, and osteoarthritis in 2017 vary from previous years due to changes in the ICD-10 codes.
Percentages do not sum to 100% because there is also an “other” payer category that is not shown, which includes self-pay, charity, workers’ compensation and unknown payer sources.

** 2015 figures, taken from the 2017 Payer Digest.
