Medicare Current Beneficiary Survey (MCBS)


The Medicare Current Beneficiary Survey (MCBS) is a continuous, multipurpose survey of a nationally representative sample of aged, disabled, and institutionalized Medicare beneficiaries. MCBS, which is sponsored by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), is the only comprehensive source of information on the health status, health care use and expenditures, health insurance coverage, and socioeconomic and demographic characteristics of the entire spectrum of Medicare beneficiaries.

This web site is intended to provide information about MCBS that will be of interest to health services researchers, particularly to current and potential users of MCBS data. Over time we expect to expand the amount and kind of material that is available.
