The MCBS has been conducted since 1991 because the information you provide about your health and health care costs is so valuable. CMS, part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, oversees Medicare and sponsors this survey in order to gain valuable information from you about how Medicare is administered. This study is the only source of such in-depth health care cost and use, which are used to accomplish the following:

  • To help us understand how Medicare affects beneficiaries' daily life, and what problems they might be experiencing with it.
  • To help increase Medicare coverage and efficiency for beneficiaries, both now and in the future.
  • To provide legislators and policy makers with more information to create effective laws and regulations for people enrolled in Medicare. In fact, the Part D prescription drug benefit was created in part based on findings from the MCBS.
  • To improve the quality-of-care Medicare beneficiaries receive.
  • To create reports using data collected to describe key factors about how people use Medicare.As an interviewer, you will ask you questions about the health care services, opinions about those services, and how much they cost. Interviewers will be required to work extensively with supporting healthcare documentation provided by the respondents to extract and enter appropriate information for the questionnaire. You will be trained on these specific skills. In the future, interviewers will be required to conduct physical measurements, e.g. height, weight, ability to walk 10 feet unassisted, grip strength, etc. To ensure consistent performance of these measures, interviewers will be trained on these measures and will need to demonstrate as needed for respondents to conduct them properly.You can read more about Medicare Current Beneficiary Survey (MCBS) at: -What we look for in a Field Interviewer.We are looking for outgoing and engaging people who have a background conducting field interviews, collecting data, medical billing, providing customer service, working in restaurants, retail stores, or any type of sales positions, and/or other public facing employment.
