Description

For sample adults, LVISPECIAL indicates if the respondent saw a specialist on the last health care visit.

Other health care providers mentioned are:

  • Nurse practitioner or physician assistant
  • (LVISNURSE)

In 2011, a different variable LVISGENSPEC asked the same question, but the response did not have nurse practitioner/physician assistant category.

This variable can be used to monitor the effects of the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
