To understand the full spectrum of care a VA patient receives, many studies look to include state health care claims data from private insurance. State health care claims data may contain vital information, as many younger Veterans use private healthcare in addition to their VA-provided care. When combined with data from VA-provided care, VA-purchased care, and CMS care, researchers can have a nearly complete picture of Veteran health care use.
