Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Data
Some Medicare Advantage enrollees have Medicare Part D prescription drug coverage. The SEER-MHOS database is now linked to SEER-Medicare, and Part D enrollment and claims data may now be requested as part of a SEER-MHOS Data Use Agreement (DUA) application. All projects requesting Part D data must:
- Provide adequate rationale to use Medicare Part D enrollment and claims information,
- Be focused on a cancer-related research question; and
- Use MHOS (survey) data in their proposed project.
NCI conducted a feasibility study using Medicare Part D data linked to SEER-MHOS data, and the final technical report available upon request. Information on the Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Event File may be found here.
