HINSCAID is a variable constructed by the State Health Access Data Assistance Center (SHADAC) at the University of Minnesota. It indicates whether respondents were covered by Medicaid, SCHIP, or some other non-Medicare, non-military public insurance program during the previous year.
Analyses of HINSCAID must use the weight variable HINSWT.
