  • 1 Results based on 46,240 Medicare members (aged 65 years or older) of Kaiser Permanente Northwest (KPNW) who completed an index MTHA survey between March 1, 2013, and February 28, 2021, (8 years) and had KPNW insurance in the 12 months before survey completion. Significant results are displayed in bold, italicized font.
