Full Description

Started in 1996, MEPS stands for the Medical Expenditure Panel Survey, which is a set of comprehensive national surveys of families and individuals, their medical providers (doctors, hospitals, pharmacies, etc.) and employers across the United States. MEPS collects data on the cost of specific health services that Americans use, how the services are funded and reimbursed, and also how frequently the services are used. The database also included cost, scope and breadth of individual medical insurance plans available to US workers.

MEPS includes two major components: the Household Component (HC) and the Insurance/Employer Component (IC). Currently projected until year 2016, HC data are available to the public in data tables, downloadable data files (person, job, event, or condition level), interactive data tools for query, as well as in publications. For the IC, also known as the Health Insurance Cost Study, MEPS collects data from a sample of private and public sector employers on the health insurance plans they offer to their employees. Like HC data, IC estimates are available on the MEPS Web site and in publications using IC data and interactive data tools. IC data are also arranged in tabular form for national, regional, state, and metropolitan areas; However, IC data files are not available for public release.
