MEPS data have formed the basis for policy-related and behavioral research on the determinants of health care use, spending, and insurance coverage. The Federal government uses MEPS data to prepare national estimates of health care use and spending; private and public health insurance coverage; and the availability, cost, and scope of private health insurance benefits for the U.S. population and for subgroups of policy interest. State governments use state-level data on health insurance from the MEPS Insurance Component to prepare reports on health insurance coverage and to study ways of expanding insurance coverage.
