The maps in this section show the costs of care per capita and incremental costs of care per capita for Medicare beneficiaries with heart disease.
Costs of Care (per capita)
Costs per capita are the average costs incurred by a Medicare beneficiary with heart disease in a given county.

Incremental costs are the costs incurred among beneficiaries with heart disease above and beyond the costs incurred among beneficiaries without heart disease.

Social determinants of health are factors in the social environment that contribute to or detract from the health of individuals and communities. Social determinants of health have been found to directly increase the burden of heart disease and stroke and their risk factors. They also indirectly influence health-promoting behaviors.
Use these selected social determinants of health maps together with other data sources to match heart disease and stroke prevention programs and policies to the needs of local populations.
