Are any of the data suppressed in the Hospice PUF data?

Hospice providers who had 10 or fewer hospice beneficiaries in the calendar year are not included in the Provider Table of the Hospice PUF. To protect the privacy of Medicare beneficiaries, any cells containing values derived from 10 or fewer beneficiaries are suppressed in the Hospice PUF. Additionally, cells that may be used to determine the value of suppressed cells are also suppressed. Suppressed cells are blank.
