The National Medical Expenditure Survey (NMES) series provides information on health expenditures by or on behalf of families and individuals, the financing of these expenditures, and each person's use of services. The Survey of American Indians and Alaska Natives (SAIAN) was designed in collaboration with the Indian Health Service (IHS), and used the same data collection instruments, interview procedures, and time frame as the NMES Household Survey component. However, the SAIAN differed from the Household Survey in several respects. The SAIAN sample was interviewed only three times and was not given the supplements on long-term care, caregiving, and care-receiving. Also, SAIAN respondents were asked additional questions on topics such as use of IHS facilities and traditional medicine, and were given a modified self-administered questionnaire with separate versions for adults and children. Interviewers for the SAIAN were mainly American Indians or Alaska Natives, and about 20 percent of the interviews were not conducted entirely in English. Of these, approximately 40 percent were conducted entirely in the native language of the respondent. Part 1 of this collection contains information on formal home care providers for each eligible person in the SAIAN who reported receiving home health services, including date the provider was seen, provider's length of stay, type of agency the provider worked for, and kind of help performed by the provider. Demographic information on the recipient (race, age, and sex), and household-reported medical conditions associated with the use of home health care is also included. Part 2 contains information on medical items purchased, rented, or otherwise obtained. Demographic variables similar to those in Part 1 are provided, along with medical conditions and dates that items were obtained. Part 3 contains variables on the type of traditional practitioner seen by respondents, as well as demographic and medical condition variables.
