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.
