SEER-Medicare: HCPCS Tables

These HCPCS tables are intended to give investigators an estimate of the utilization of specific medical services or prescription drugs over time according to NCH and Outpatient claims. These HCPCS tables were generated for all patients in the PEDSF file and separately for breast, prostate, lung and colorectal cancer patients. The tables show the number of patients with each HCPCS code by year and were generated for all HCPCS codes as well as just the J-codes. Please note that the PEDSF file includes SEER-linked cases diagnosed from 1973 to 2011, but only SEER cases diagnosed from 2000 to 2011 from the expansion registries: Greater California, New Jersey, Louisiana, Kentucky, and Greater Georgia.

Please note that additional prescription drug information may be included in DME claims as shown in these tables.
