Health care expenditures for adults with multiple treated chronic conditions: estimates from the Medical Expenditure Panel Survey, 2009.
The authors illustrated the usefulness of MEPS data for examining variations in medical expenditures for people with multiple chronic conditions (MCC). They found that the proportion of adults treated for MCC increased with age, with white non-Hispanic adults most likely and Hispanic and Asian adults least likely to be treated for MCC. Regardless of age or sex, hypertension and hyperlipidemia was the most common dyad among adults treated for MCC, and diabetes in conjunction with these 2 conditions was a common triad. They concluded that MEPS has the capacity to produce national estimates of health care expenditures associated with MCC.
