[R] OT: Looking for freely available medical data

I'm a computer science graduate student studying machine learning and rule-based induction. I'd like to explore if it is possible to predict future disease rates based on medical data.

However, medical claims data like this is usually only collected by insurance companies who aren't going to share with me.

There are lots of statisticians on this list -- maybe somebody knows about some freely available datasets, like 20-year-old Medicare claims that have all personal information removed.

TIA
