dc.description.abstractThe rapidly changing field of medicine introduces new aspects to care that have created dimensions to healthcare services. With the increasing growth of Advanced Practice Providers, such as Physician Assistants and Nurse Practitioners, and their similar scopes of practice, clarity is needed on the effects of this newly shaped healthcare team and the cost and prevalence of care from these providers. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) prepared a public dataset with annual information on services and procedures performed by physicians, advanced practice providers, and other healthcare providers. This data provides the average allowed Medicare amount, a number that represents cost, and a range of Healthcare Common Procedure Coding System (HCPCS) codes to determine the service performed. Using this data, inferences on the prevalence of physicians and advanced practice providers as well as their cost per service will be assessed.en_US
