States by the Numbers

All healthcare is local. Disease prevalence and healthcare procedures and costs vary with geography. FAIR Health can shine a spotlight on the location you want to study and the information you need.

We can provide customized data analyses and visualizations on the level of a geozip (a geographic region typically defined by the first three digits of a zip code), a combination of geozips, a state, a multistate region or the nation. The questions we can answer include:

  • What states have the most private insurance claims for a condition?
  • How has utilization for the condition changed over time?
  • What age and gender groups are most likely to be diagnosed?
  • What are the most common and costly procedures for the condition?
  • How do diagnoses or procedures vary in rural and urban areas or across places of service?

All healthcare stakeholders benefit from this geographic window into the data, including federal and state governments, policy makers, researchers, patient advocacy groups, regional associations, payors, providers and manufacturers.

An example follows. For more information on how analyses and visualizations can be customized to your particular needs, see Custom Solutions.

Opioid Abuse and Dependence: State-by-State

The heat map below represents opioid abuse and dependence claim lines as a percentage of total medical claim lines by state in 2017 from the FAIR Health private healthcare insurance data repository. The darkest states are those where the percentage is highest. Clicking on a state will display an infographic on opioid abuse and dependence for that state in 2017. The infographic includes the top five procedure codes by utilization and aggregate cost, as well as diagnoses by age and gender.
