The Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) code tables (below) 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 SEER Cancer 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 SEER Cancer file includes SEER-linked cases diagnosed from 1975 to 2017, but only SEER cases diagnosed from 2000 to 2017 from the expansion registries: Greater California, New Jersey, Louisiana, Kentucky, Greater Georgia, Idaho, New York, and Massachusetts.
