The distribution of the total claims paid (cost) is determined by quartile. The percentage of patients represented in the top quartile of cost generally align with the number of CCs per cluster, which are greatest for clusters on the left and decrease progressively in moving from left to right. Numbers within the yellow bars reflect percentages of all patients in the upper quartile of cost for each cluster group.
