Glossary Definition

Last Updated: 2013-06-05


The percentage of residents who received at least one "Complete History and Physical Examination" in a fiscal year. This was defined as an ambulatory visit with any of the following physician tariff codes: 8450, 8460, 8495, 8498, 8499, 8500, 8540, or 8594 from the Medical Services/Physician claims data.

These tariff codes refer to "complete" physical exams of the entire body - not regional exams or specialty specific histories. The various physician tariff codes cover different age groups, specialties of physicians, and whether the exam included a Papanicolaou smear or not.
