MGA’s Alex Brill on CNBC’s Squawk Box
Alex Brill joined ‘Squawk Box’ to discuss the cost of the opioid crisis and his recent study.
“There is a real wide variation when we think about how this epidemic has affected different parts of the country…. What we tried to do is allocate these costs by state and even by county. And what we find in that result is in a per capita basis, places like District of Columbia, New Hampshire, Connecticut, these are really leading states in these non-mortality related costs. When we think about total costs, meaning adding in the cost of lost life, West Virginia just shoots to the top of the list.”
