What is the most complete source of data on the use and costs of health care for Americans?

Adding up health care cost and coverage with MEPS

Westat has conducted the Medical Expenditure Panel Survey – Household Component (MEPS-HC) since it began in 1996. MEPS, which is funded by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, is the most complete source of data on the use and costs of health care for the general civilian population of the U.S.

The major challenges of the survey are to get full and accurate reporting of health care use and expenses for household respondents over a period of 2 calendar years and deliver files ready for public use on a demanding schedule.
