Your participation contributes to an important effort to develop an accurate and comprehensive picture of health care expenditures in the United States.
The Pharmacy data helps to answer such important questions as,
- How much of prescription costs are covered by insurance?
- What do people pay out of pocket for medications?
- What medicines are people receiving?
- What types of medications are not covered by insurance plans?
Prescription medicines are a major and increasing component of total health care costs. For private planning as well as public policy decisions, we all benefit from having accurate information available to inform our deliberations. By signing the Medical Expenditure Panel Survey (MEPS) HIPAA-compliant Authorization Form, your customers have asked that you share their data with the study.
