Codes and Frequencies
For all persons covered by some "other" government health plan HIOTHGOVE (i.e., those who do not have coverage through Medicare, Medi-Gap, Medicaid, CHIP/Children's Health Insurance Program, Military health care, Indian Health Service or a State-sponsored health plan), this variable indicates if the person is required to sign up with a certain primary care doctor, group of doctors, or certain clinic which he or she must go to for all of routine care. Interviewers instructed respondents to not include emergency care or care from a specialist.
