APAC receives administrative data on most Oregon residents. Administrative data are collected by insurers for purposes related to issuing coverage and making payments.
As an example, for 2018, APAC contains data representing 92% of Oregon residents despite lacking some self-insured data. Those not in APAC are uninsured, are covered by Federal programs such as Tricare or Veterans Affairs or are covered by self-insured plans not reporting to APAC. In 2018, APAC contains:
- ~100% of fully-insured (1,837,000 members)
- 36% - 61% of self-insured (318,000 - 534,000 members)*
- 96% of Medicaid OHP/CCO and FFS (1,219,000 members)
- ~100% of Medicare (966,000 members)
APAC receives medical claims, dental claims, pharmacy claims, payment amounts, member demographics, billed premiums and provider information. Data are received from insurance companies, third party administrators and pharmacy benefits managers identified as mandatory reporters.
