Description:
   The Medical Expenditure Panel Survey (MEPS) Insurance Component (IC) is an annual survey of private sector and public sector employers covering the health insurance plans offered to their employees. The survey collects information on the number and types of private insurance plans offered, premiums, contributions by employers and employees, copay and coinsurance payments, benefits associated with these plans, and characteristics of the employers. Estimates from these data are produced at the national and state levels. This document describes the weights used to produce these estimates from the 2011 MEPS-IC data. The variance estimation technique used in the production of the official tables from the data is also described.
