The Medical Expenditure Panel Survey (MEPS) has modified interview procedures, such as the introduction of social distancing and the use of personal protective equipment, as a commitment to ensure respondent and interviewer safety while collecting data during the COVID-19 pandemic.

We also monitor conditions and regulations in your local area to determine if in-person interviews can take place at this time. In places where local conditions do not permit in-person interviews or if you prefer a video interview, we will conduct your MEPS interview by video.

If you have any questions, please call Alex Scott on the MEPS Hotline at 1-800-945-MEPS (6377) or send an e-mail to
