This release contains the Basic Stand Alone (BSA) Carrier Line Items Public Use Files (PUF) with information from Medicare Carrier claims. The CMS BSA Carrier Line Items PUF is a line item level file in which each record is a line item of a Carrier claim incurred by a 5 percent sample of Medicare beneficiaries. Some demographic and line item related variables are provided in this PUF as detailed below. However, as beneficiary identities are not provided, it is not possible to link claims that belong to the same beneficiary in the CMS BSA Carrier Line Items PUF. It is also not possible to link line items that belong to the same claim.
