This report presents summary information on the quality of health care received by Medicare beneficiaries. Quality-of-care data are presented at the national level for both patient experience and clinical care measures and are shown separately for women and men. Data are reported separately for women and men because there is evidence that quality of care may be different for these groups. This information may be of interest to Medicare beneficiaries, Medicare Advantage and prescription drug plans, and others interested in better understanding beneficiaries' quality of care and how it differs by gender.
