Outcomes for cardiac valve procedure patients are affected by insurance status
Date:7/6/2011

redictor of disease and the differences in allocation of surgical treatment as a function of payer status, no study has fully examined the impact of primary payer status among patients undergoing cardiac valve procedures, nor have they been evaluated in a national database.

The study evaluated 477,932 patients undergoing cardiac valve operations over a six-year period using discharge data from the Nationwide Inpatient Sample database. Patients in each payer group had different demographics; income and risk factors, and risk adjustment identified the independent effect of payer status.

After adjusting for risk factors, payer status remained a highly significant predictor of mortality. Specifically, uninsured, Medicaid, and Medicare status showed a 100 percent, 70 percent, and 36 percent increase in the odds of in-hospital death, respectively, compared with private insurance. A review of multiple variables for postoperative complications identified uninsured, Medicaid and Medicare payer status as important independent predictors of morbidity as well.
