4 Between 1990-1998, this survey item was revised several times, making strict comparisons across years difficult. For 1995, multiple sources of payment could be reported. For 1998, only the primary expected source of payment was reported. For 1995, the data shown here for private insurance combine separate survey categories of Blue Cross/Blue Shield, other private insurance, other insurance, and unspecified insurance. Prior to 1997, the category of self-pay included copayments and deductibles. Consult the source data for further detail.
