There are 40 other chronic health, mental health, substance abuse, and potentially disabling condition categories available for file years 2000 forward. These conditions enhance research of the Medicare-Medicaid dual enrolled population; however, they are available for all non-dually enrolled Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries as well.

All variables listed on this page are currently available in the Master Beneficiary Summary File (MBSF) in the MBSF_OTCC_YYYY file.

They are also available in Medicare-Medicaid Linked Enrollee Analytic Data Source (MMLEADS) (2006–2012) and Medicaid Enrollee Supplemental File (MESF) (1999–2013).

The Applying Chronic Conditions to Medicaid Data (MAX) document provides guidance when applying Chronic Conditions or Other Chronic Health, Mental Health, and Potentially Disabling Conditions algorithms to Medicaid data.
