Supplementary notes

Insurance status for people ages 0-64 years consists of three categories:
• Private Insurance: Person has access to insurance from a private insurer.
• Public Insurance: Person receives insurance from one or more government-sponsored sources, including Medicaid, State Children’s Health Insurance Program (S-CHIP), state sponsored or other government-sponsored health plans, Medicare, and military and veteran health plans.
• Uninsured: Person does not have any health insurance.
It should be noted that the Indian Health Service (IHS) is not considered a health plan for this report.
Quality healthcare often means striking the right balance in the provision of health services by avoiding overuse (e.g., getting unnecessary tests), underuse (e.g., not being screened for high blood pressure), or misuse (e.g., being prescribed drugs that have dangerous interactions)
Broad categories of healthcare quality measures:
Person-Centered Care, Patient Safety, Care Coordination, Affordable Care, Effective Treatment, Healthy Living.
