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
MEPS topics to find information on this site for particular topics of interest.
