Abstract BACKGROUND: Peanut allergy (PA) affects ∼1.6 million US children. The current standard of care is strict avoidance and prompt reaction treatment. PA healthcare costs and healthcare resource utilization (HCRU) are poorly understood. OBJECTIVE: To estimate PA healthcare costs and HCRU using a nationally representative commercial payer database. METHODS: The IBM MarketScan ® Commercial Claims and Encounters Database was examined for PA diagnosis/reaction codes between January 2011 and October 2015 in patients ≤64 years, with age cohort-matched controls. Outcomes were measured 12 months b...
