and Expenditure Survey (NMCUES). A dental visit



was any visit to a dentist, dental surgeon, oral surgeon, orthodontist, or other person for dental care. This report presents prelimina ~ estimates based on the first 6 months of data collected from the national household sample. The estimates do not ’ necessarily represent half of the final full year estimates because of possible changes in utilization, reporting, or data processing. The data in this report, however, provide the best recent information on charges for dental visits and estimates of total expenditures for personal dental care for the civilian noninstitutionalized population of the United States. Survey Background NMCUES was designed to provide estimates of the health of the civilian noninstitutionalized population of the United States, its utilization and expenditures for various types of medical care, and health insurance coverage and amounts paid by insurers for health care. Specific data relating to the Medicare and Medicaid programs were also collected. NMCUES data were obtained from three sources:. The national household sample.. Four State Medicaid household samples. Medicare and Medicaid administrative records. About 17,900 persons were included in the national household sample, and about 13,700 persons were included in the four State Medicaid household samples. Information for all family members was collected from a single household respondent through a set of five interviews approximately 3 months apart. Administrative records were extracted for people in interviewed households reported to be covered by Medicare or Medicaid. Data from the national household sample complement the data collected in the National Health Interview Survey, and they update and show time trends from 1977 when data were obtained by the National Medical Care Expenditure Survey. The State household samples and administrative records provide program monitoring data on participation in the Medicaid program and utilization of covered and uncovered services by Medicare recipients
