IV.10: Ticket Participation Rates by Primary Impairment, August 2003 - Shows the variation in Ticket participation rates by phase and primary impairment in August 2003. Phase 1 participation rates ranged from 4.4 percent for severe hearing impairment to 0.3 percent for impairments of the respiratory and circulatory systems. Phase 2 participation rates ranged from 1.3 percent for severe hearing impairment to 0.1 percent for 3 categories of impairments. For both phases, the most striking aspect of this figure is the relatively high rate of participation by beneficiaries with severe hearing impairments. That rate is roughly two to three times higher than the next-highest rates in the other categories of impairments.
