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) with a deductible (OTHGOVDEDT), OTHGOVHIDEDT reports if the person's health insurance has a high deductible. In 2019, the NHIS questionnaire defines an annual deductible of $1,350 or more as "high." This threshold may change in the future.
Persons included in the universe are persons 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.
