Data are shown for Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) regions that are constructed to show economically interdependent States. These BEA geographic regions differ from Bureau of the Census geographic divisions shown in some Health, United States tables. See Appendix II, Geographic region and division.


Prior to 1999 recipient counts exclude those individuals who only received coverage under prepaid health care and for whom no direct vendor payments were made during the year; and vendor payments exclude payments to health maintenance organizations and other prepaid health plans ($15 billion in 1996). The total number of persons who were Medicaid eligible and enrolled was 41.2 million in 1996 (CMS Medicaid Statistics, Program and Financial Statistics FY1996, unpublished).

NOTES: Payments exclude disproportionate share hospital payments ($15.5 billion in FY2001). Data for additional years are available. See Appendix III.
