Description
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services intends to award a cost plus fixed-fee contract for design, data collection, and data preparation to continue the Medicare Current Beneficiary Survey (MCBS1), a multi-year survey of a nationally representative sample of Medicare beneficiaries. Interviews for the MCBS have been conducted three times a year since 1991, using computer Assisted Personal Interviewing (CAPI) technology. The sample consists of approximately 16,000 individuals drawn from the Medicare enrollment files in over 100 primary sampling units. Interviews are approximately one hour in length and cover health care utilization, expenditures, insurance coverage, health status, illness, disability, and demographic and behavioral characteristics. Data will be validated and weighted to produce national and regional estimates and to serve as a research database. Quick turnaround of high quality data will be emphasized for use in formulating national policy. Proposed period of performance is five years from date of contract award. We anticipate this solicitation to be posted to the FedBizOps in about fifteen (15) days. The incumbent contractor is Westat, Inc.
