For persons covered by private insurance, SURGOTHR reports if the person had some other type of health insurance plan for surgical care (surgeons' bills for operations), other than through Medicare or Medicaid, Blue Cross or a prepaid group plan.

Insurance included all types of plans, including plans which paid extra cash in the event of hospitalization, but excluding plans which paid only for accidents.
