The heat map 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.
