Codes and Frequencies
For sample adults and sample children who currently have health insurance coverage through a public program other than Medicare (for sample adults only), Medicaid, CHIP/SCHIP, Military health care/VA, TRICARE/CHAMPUS/CHAMP-VA, Indian Health Service, or a State-sponsored public health insurance plan (HIOTHGOVE), OTHGOVDEDT reports if the person's other government plan has an annual deductible. The 2019 questionnaire defines a deductible as "the amount you have to pay for health care before your health insurance or health coverage plan will start paying your medical bills."
Persons included in the universe are those who were classified as having other public health insurance coverage in the back-edited variable HIOTHGOVE. This is recommended as the most reliable source of information about the type of insurance coverage compared to that provided by respondents' original unedited answers about their insurance type.
