SAS Name

This variable indicates whether the Plan is Medicare Part C, Part D or both. All Part C and D Plans are included in the file.


You may use this field to identify plans that offer either only the Part C benefit, the Part D benefit, or both. Note that plans that are identified as Part C may include other nonfee-for-service plans such as some demonstrations (i.e., not all plans identified as Part C plans are Medicare Advantage managed care plans).
