Description:
   Based on pooled data for 2013-2015 from the Household Component of the Medical Expenditure Panel Survey (MEPS-HC), this Research Findings report examines the extent of opioid use among adults in the civilian noninstitutionalized population by selected medical condition groupings. In particular, persons treated for conditions associated with chronic pain are compared to persons treated for other types of conditions. The results provide baseline data that can help inform patients, providers, and policymakers as they continue to monitor the effects of the opioid crisis and the impacts of efforts to address it.
