All-Payor Claims Database
What is an all-payor claims database?
All-payor claims databases are large, comprehensive state records of a variety of claims collected from both public payors, such as Medicare and Medicaid, and private payors. Payors are under order to report their data to the state directly.
All-payor claims databases include data on:
- Medical claims
- Dental claims
- Pharmacy claims
- Provider files
- Eligibility files
Why are all-payor claims databases important to healthcare?
All-payor claims databases are important to healthcare because they feature complete and thorough data from all insurance companies within a state. The data includes private insurance information, which other databases do not have. Further, all-payor claims databases store data related to care across sites. Lastly, all-payor claims databases represent a range of geographic areas, sample sizes and longitudinal data.
