Financial incentives and drug spending in managed care. (1/456)

This study estimates the impact of patient financial incentives on the use and cost of prescription drugs in the context of differing physician payment mechanisms. A large data set was developed that covers persons in managed care who pay varying levels of cost sharing and whose physicians are compensated under two different models: independent practice association (IPA)-model and network-model health maintenance organizations (HMOs). Our results indicate that higher patient copayments for prescription drugs are associated with lower drug spending in IPA models (in which physicians are not at risk for drug costs) but have little effect in network models (in which physicians bear financial risk for all prescribing behavior).  (+info)

Who bears the burden of Medicaid drug copayment policies? (2/456)

This DataWatch examines the impact of Medicaid prescription drug copayment policies in thirty-eight states using survey data from the 1992 Medicare Current Beneficiary Survey. Findings indicate that elderly and disabled Medicaid recipients who reside in states with copay provisions have significantly lower rates of drug use than their counterparts in states without copayments. After controlling for other factors, we find that the primary effect of copayments is to reduce the likelihood that Medicaid recipients fill any prescription during the year. This burden falls disproportionately on recipients in poor health.  (+info)

Outpatient antidepressant utilization in a Dutch sick fund. (3/456)

OBJECTIVE: To identify quality improvement opportunities in the management of depression by evaluating patterns of antidepressant use and concurrent use of anxiolytics or sedative/hypnotics among patients who initiated therapy with amitriptyline, fluoxetine, fluvoxamine, or paroxetine. DESIGN: A longitudinal, retrospective study using electronic prescription data from a Dutch sick fund, ZAO Zorgverzekeringen. PATIENTS AND METHODS: The study patients (n = 2,554) initiated therapy between October 1, 1994 and December 31, 1995. Follow-up periods were 6 months (antidepressant use) and 60 days (concurrent anxiolytic and sedative/hypnotic use). RESULTS: The three key findings were as follows: (1) the majority of patients received less than 4 months of therapy (more common for patients receiving amitriptyline); (2) the average daily doses for initial prescriptions for all four study drugs were below the recommended therapeutic minimums for depression (overall and final amitriptyline doses also were consistently low); and (3) the incidence of concurrent anxiolytic and sedative/hypnotic use during days 2-60 after antidepressant therapy initiation was 18.2%. CONCLUSION: The study suggests that patients in this Dutch sick fund were not likely to receive either adequate antidepressant doses or adequate durations of therapy relative to Dutch guidelines for the treatment of depression. These findings are consistent with findings in other Dutch, European, and US studies and may present opportunities for quality improvement.  (+info)

Factors affecting bargaining outcomes between pharmacies and insurers. (4/456)

OBJECTIVE: To model the bargaining power of pharmacies and insurers in price negotiations and test whether it varies with characteristics of the pharmacy, insurer, and pharmacy market. DATA SOURCES/STUDY SETTING: Data from four sources. Pharmacy/insurer transactions were taken from Medstat's universe of 6.8 million pharmacy claims in their 1994 Marketscan database. Sources Informatics, Inc. supplied a three-digit zip code-level summary database containing pharmacy payments and self-reported costs for retail (cash-paying) customers for the top 200 pharmaceutical products by prescription size in 1994. The National Council of Prescription Drug Programs supplied their 1994 pharmacy database. Zip code-level socioeconomic and commercial information was taken from Bureau of the Census' 1990 Summary Tape File 3B and 1994 Zip Code Business Patterns database. STUDY DESIGN: The provider/insurer bargaining model first employed in Brooks, Dor, and Wong (1997, 1998) was adapted to the circumstances surrounding pharmacy and insurer bargaining. DATA COLLECTION/EXTRACTION METHODS: The units of observation in this study were single Medstat claims for each unique insurer/pharmacy combination in the database for selected pharmaceutical products. The four products selected varied in the conditions they treat, whether they are used to treat chronic or acute conditions, and by their sales volume. Used in the analysis were 9,758 Zantac, 2,681 Humulin, 3,437 Mevacor, and 1,860 Dilantin observations. PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: We find statistically significant variation in pharmacy bargaining power. Pharmacy bargaining power varies significantly across markets, insurers, and pharmacy types. With respect to market structure, pharmacy bargaining power is negatively related to pharmacies per capita and pharmacies per employer and positively related to pharmacy concentration at higher concentration levels. In addition, the higher the percentage of independent pharmacies in an area, the lower the pharmacy bargaining power. With respect to socioeconomic conditions, pharmacy bargaining power is higher in areas with lower per capita income and higher rates of public assistance. CONCLUSIONS: The bargaining power of pharmacies in contract negotiations with insurers varies considerably with exogenous factors. Local area pharmacy ownership concentration enhances pharmacy bargaining. As a result, anti-trust law prohibiting the collective bargaining of independent pharmacies with insurers leaves independents at a disadvantage with respect to chains.  (+info)

Pharmacist compensation for ambulatory patient care services. (5/456)

This activity is designed for pharmacists practicing in ambulatory, community, and managed care environments. GOAL: To discuss issues involved in the transition from product-based to patient-care-based reimbursement and compensation systems for pharmacists. OBJECTIVES: 1. Differentiate between reimbursement and compensation. 2. Describe the limitations of current third-party reimbursement and compensation systems. 3. Describe ways in which compensation for seemingly identical products and services can vary. 4. Discuss the use of Medicare's Resource-Based Value Scale and the relative value unit. 5. Define and differentiate between ICD-9-CM codes and E/M CPT codes. 6. List the three key components needed to determine an E/M CPT code for a new patient seen in the pharmacy. 7. Describe and provide examples of the SOAP method of documentation. 8. Understand why the referral process is an important step in the compensation process. 9. Discuss the importance of Form HCFA-1500 and other documentation in the compensation process.  (+info)

Managed care and sexual dysfunction. Based on a presentation by William Parham, MD. (6/456)

The availability of managed care benefits for the treatment of sexual dysfunction is inextricably linked with cost. An atypically low increase of 4.4% in aggregate healthcare expenditures in 1995-1996 stands in sharp contrast to outlays of more than 11% between 1966 and 1993. Between 1993 and 1996, that increase hovered at about 5%, the result largely of the growth of managed care and low levels of general inflation. However, despite relative containment of overall healthcare expenditures, those related to pharmaceuticals have risen more than 9.2% annually, an increase that reflects the managed care industry's failure to restrain drug costs. In deciding whether it will cover a particular treatment, the managed care industry applies three sets of criteria relating to efficacy, medical necessity, and appropriateness. Managed care companies are expected to counter runaway pharmacy costs for sildenafil by excluding it from coverage, imposing significant limitations, or requiring higher copayments.  (+info)

Migraine in managed care. Based on a presentation by Delores Bowman, RN, BSN, CRM. (7/456)

Migraine, one of the most common conditions reported by health plan members, receives inadequate attention in most managed care settings. The lack of a consistent and concerted approach to the management of patients with the most severe and intractable varieties of migraine is particularly obvious. Studies in our plan population have documented that the availability of effective new pharmacologic antimigraine agents could reduce both sick days and hospital visits. Development of new guidelines for management of migraine patients, including a formulary indicating the availability of agents that have been documented to be effective, will be a critical step in educating physicians as to the proper management of patients with migraine. Such guidelines should also provide specific criteria for referral. Studies that document positive outcomes of new migraine protocols will provide a basis for employer-driven expansion of migraine-related healthcare coverage.  (+info)

Is prior authorization of topical tretinoin for acne cost effective? (8/456)

OBJECTIVE: To determine whether prior authorization of topical tretinoin for acne is in the best interest of health insurers and, if so, to determine the optimal prior authorization age for topical tretinoin. STUDY DESIGN: A retrospective, cross-sectional study of data from the National Ambulatory Medical Care Survey was performed. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We performed a sensitivity analysis using published data on the age distribution for topical tretinoin prescriptions for acne and nonacne indications to estimate the cost of topical tretinoin and the cost of performing prior authorizations as a function of the prior authorization age. RESULTS: A prior authorization age of 25 for topical tretinoin is not cost effective for health insurers. If prior authorization is required, an age threshold of 35 or older is most cost effective. The total cost of topical tretinoin (the sum of the drug costs plus the prior authorization costs) changes little with changes in the prior authorization age; if the prior authorization age is set too low, total costs increase (because the number of prior authorizations increase). CONCLUSIONS: Prior authorization for topical tretinoin is of no great benefit to insurers. As the prior authorization age decreases, the cost of requiring prior authorization increases. Eliminating prior authorization altogether would result in at most a small increase in costs and would be balanced by the benefits to both patients and physicians.  (+info)

We examine whether obtaining prescription drug insurance through the Medicare Part D program affected hospital admissions, expenditures associated with those admissions, and mortality. We use a large, geographically diverse sample of Medicare beneficiaries and exploit the natural experiment of Medicare Part D to obtain estimates of the effect of prescription drug insurance on hospitalizations and mortality. Results indicate that obtaining prescription drug insurance through Medicare Part D was associated with an 8% decrease in the number of hospital admissions, a 7% decrease in Medicare expenditures, and a 12% decrease in total resource use. Gaining prescription drug insurance through Medicare Part D was not significantly associated with mortality ...
Medicares drug benefit (Part D) offers outpatient prescription drug coverage for anyone with Medicare. It is only available through private companies.. If you want to get Part D coverage, you have to choose and enroll in a private Medicare prescription drug plan (PDP) or a Medicare Advantage Plan with drug coverage (MAPD). Enrollment is optional (though recommended to avoid incurring future penalties) and only allowed during approved enrollment periods. Whether you should sign up for a Medicare Part D plan depends on your circumstances. Some people already enrolled in certain low-income assistance programs may be automatically enrolled in a Medicare drug plan and receive additional financial assistance paying for their medicines.. ...
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) are the agencies of the U.S. government that administer the Medicare program. Medicare provides health insurance coverage to citizens who are at least 65 years old. Specific criteria must be met for a person younger than 65 to be eligible for the CMS Medicare program. New CMS Medicare drug plans were made available to all Medicare members on January 1, 2006. These plans were made possible through insurance companies and private interest working with CMS Medicare. Discounts on drug prices are possible through this partnership. CMS Medicare members must research and choose a drug plan suitable to their situations.. These new drug plans are not free, like the CMS Medicare Part A plan. Members of the new CMS Medicare drug plan must pay a monthly fee and a fraction of their prescription drugs. This out-of-pocket fraction varies by drug plan.. Each new CMS Medicare drug plan must provide a minimum standard of coverage. Some of the ...

Do You Want Increased Defense Spending or Medicare Prescription Drug Coverage?. (8/14/99)- We all know that amongst other things life involves compromise and choices. We believe that in order to have prescription drug coverage under Medicare we must have compromises within the budgetary process. As we see it this, compromise must come from the money allocated for defense spending. The Balanced Budget Act of 1997 has meant that there has been a cut of anywhere from 10 to 20% in spending in most areas to stay within the caps that are set by the Act. Thus there is literally no room for compromise in these areas. This has meant that the Congress has had to use subterfuges such as using the term emergency spending in order to be able to allocate money for certain purposes. This however will create several problems down the road.. Looking at the Houses version of the Defense Departments appropriation about $266 billion will be spent on military appropriations. This is an increase of about $15.5 ...
Prescription Drug Program Prior Authorization Criteria Revised 2/27/2015 This document is an informational listing of the medications requiring a Prior Authorization through the Arkansas Medicaid Pharmacy
Because FEHBP plans pay well for prescription drugs, adding Medicare D prescription drug coverage would not make sense for most retirees. There are exceptions, particularly people with low incomes and limited assets who will not have to pay Part D premiums or deductibles and will not face a gap in coverage. A second possible exception would be a person enrolled in an FEHBP plan with a weak drug benefit.. Since any participant in any FEHBP plan has creditable drug coverage, he/she can enroll in Part D in later years without paying a penalty. Or, if one loses FEHB coverage and within 63 days joins a Medicare drug plan, he/she will not have to pay a penalty.. Medicare D participants generally must be enrolled in a specific drug plan, which in turn will contract with the pharmacies that will comprise their primary network. The administration expects that there will be about twelve drug plan choices available. A web-based Medicare Prescription Drug Finder is available during Open Season.. ...
A recent survey indicates that prices for the top 20 drugs used by Medicare enrollees are much higher than prices negotiated by the Department of Veterans Affairs. According to the report Falling Short: Medicare Prescription Drug Plans Offer Meager Savings from Families USA, the median difference for those top 20 drugs is 48.2 percent.. Only drugs that were on a Medicare prescription drug plans formulary - drugs for which the plan would have actively negotiated prices - were included in the analysis.. The survey ruffled feathers at the Pharmaceutical Care Management Association, whose own survey finds that PBMs are negotiating deep discounts in Medicare. PCMA says it will save Medicare beneficiaries an average of 31 percent at retail pharmacies and 45 percent through mail-service pharmacies, compared to the customary prices that retail pharmacies charge. In itself, this statement does not contradict the Families USA study.. PCMA contends that a VA-style approach to Medicare drug pricing would ...

In 2014, prescription drug benefits varied greatly among the health plans offered through Covered California, the states health insurance marketplace. There were also differences in coverage between these plans and Californias most common employer-based health plans. In a project supported by CHCF, Avalere Health compared these new individual market plans to one another and to employer-sponsored insurance, the coverage source for most Californians. Researchers examined 2014 pharmacy benefits and how easily consumers were able to compare their options. The report offers insights into how barriers to necessary prescription drugs might further be reduced and how consumer access to drug cost and coverage information could be improved across the individual market. While this report focuses on health plans offered through Covered California, many of the issues it raises reflect larger trends in formulary design in the broader individual market.

There are several key health insurance issues facing empty nesters and retirees.. If you retire prior to age 65 when Medicare coverage is set to begin, you will need coverage to bridge the gap between when you retire and when you turn 65. If your spouse continues to work, you may want to consider getting yourself added to his or her plan, though you may need to wait until the employers annual enrollment period.. Alternatively, you also may purchase coverage through a private insurer or through HealthCare.gov (or your states program).. Once you enroll in Medicare, you should consider purchasing Part D of Medicare, the Medicare Prescription Drug Plan, which can help you save money on prescriptions.. Additionally, you may want to consider other Medigap insurance, which is designed to pay for medical care not covered by Medicare. Medigap plans are bought through private insurance companies and best purchased within the first six months of turning age 65 since no health exam is required during this ...

Specialty drugs or specialty pharmaceuticals are a recent designation of pharmaceuticals that are classified as high-cost, high complexity and/or high touch. Specialty drugs are often biologics-drugs derived from living cells that are injectable or infused (although some are oral medications). They are used to treat complex or rare chronic conditions such as cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, hemophilia, H.I.V. psoriasis, inflammatory bowel disease and hepatitis C. In 1990 there were 10 specialty drugs on the market, in the mid-1990s there were fewer than 30, by 2008 there were 200, and by 2015 there were 300. Drugs are often defined as specialty because their price is much higher than that of non-specialty drugs. Medicare defines any drug for which the negotiated price is $670 per month or more, as a specialty drug which is placed in a specialty tier that requires a higher patient cost sharing. Drugs are also identified as specialty when there is a special handling requirement or the drug is only ...

Now that theyre retired, Charles Snow and his wife Eleanor wish they could spend their savings traveling. But instead, theyre spending it on their prescription drugs. The cholesterol medicine and the others I take, I couldnt give up any of them and maintain a quality of life, says Eleanor.. Theyre not particularly sick, just the normal problems that come with aging like arthritis, chest pain, and high cholesterol. Yet they spend at least $250 a month on medicine. Thats because unlike private insurance, traditional medicare doesnt cover prescription drugs.. Congress is trying to find a way to include the benefit, but in the meantime, an estimated 12-million seniors have no help. But there are hundreds of drug discount programs currently out there, its finding them that can be hard. Now a new web site from the national council on aging has at least 240 key programs in one place, and filling out one form tells you which ones you qualify for, and how to apply.. All you do is go to the web ...
[...] about that crisis. What has rightly made drug costs a political issue, however, are the astronomical prices of a few specialty medicines. The best strategy to push down such prices - the one endorsed by Clinton and one of her rivals for the Democratic presidential nomination, Bernie Sanders - is to give Medicare, which pays for 29 percent of all U.S. prescription drug purchases, the ability to negotiate prices with drugmakers. In 2003, when lawmakers created the Medicare prescription drug benefit, they explicitly prohibited bargaining.
April 16, 2009 - The ACR and RBMA have developed best practice guidelines for third-party payors, managed care organizations (MCOs), radiology benefit managers (RBMs), and imaging providers for use when implementing or evaluating a Radiology Benefits Management Program (RBMP). The College does not endorse RBMs or their approach to the marketplace, as there are better alternatives, but recognizes their current role in imaging utilization management and seeks to improve the strategies used by these programs regarding burdens created for providers and their patients.. The ACR is confident that, if implemented, these guidelines will result in a uniform process that would ease the administrative burden on payors/MCOs, ordering physicians and imaging providers. These guidelines could function as benchmarks for RBM performance.. To read the ACR/RBMA guidelines for RBMPs, please go to ...
Helping your clients choose the right health and drug benefit plan for their organization promotes a healthy workforce, increases employee satisfaction and contributes to their bottom line. There are many factors to consider when selecting a plan, including the plan sponsors goals for the plan, the number of employees, the needs of their workforce, and their budget. Most employers purchase benefits with the goal of providing plan members access to the most appropriate and timely treatments.. To manage budgets, employers may consider adopting measures to reduce costs, however, most of these measures will restrict employee access to needed medicines. Examples include influencing the choice of therapy, delaying or denying therapy, or influencing the method of access (case management, Preferred Pharmacy Networks - PPN, etc.). Other measures impose greater cost-sharing for employees by way of higher deductibles, premiums, or co-payment amounts. Limiting the amount of benefits payable to employees, ...

Morning Consult Poll Shows 85 percent of Part D Enrollees Believe Their Drug Plan Offers Good Value WASHINGTON - A nationwide survey of Americans 65 and older who are enrolled in Medicare Part D prescription drug plans shows that the program remains enormously popular. Among poll respondents, 87 percent said they were satisfied with their Medicare prescription drug coverage and 85 percent said that their Part D plan provided good value.. The survey of 2,000 seniors was performed by Morning Consult and commissioned by the Medicare Today coalition. Mary R. Grealy, president of the Healthcare Leadership Council and chair of Medicare Today, said the survey results underscore the importance of maintaining the fundamental structure of the Part D program.. Over a decade ago, Congress fundamentally changed Medicare by adding prescription drug coverage and decided to utilize the power of competition and consumer choice to drive value and affordability. Time has proven that judgment to be the correct ...

Born out of political controversy and a litany of pundit predictions that it would never work (plans wouldnt participate, seniors would be too confused by the choices, costs would be too high), the Medicare Part D prescription drug program continues to be quite the success story.. A survey of seniors nationwide, conducted in March by KRC Research, found that 84 percent feel favorably toward the Part D program. Thats actually up six points from the programs popularity rating in 2006.. The survey numbers demonstrate that Congress did a good job in constructing the program, relying upon competition between private plans to hold costs down and drive up value. 88 percent of those surveyed say their Part D plan is providing them good value on their medicines, and seven of every 10 respondents say they have lowered their prescription drug spending because of the benefit.. Even with this high approval rating, there is still work to be done. We need aggressive outreach to locate those ...
By Christina Jensen. As Open Enrollment Begins, Beneficiaries who Rely on Copay Coupons Must Consider this New Policy When Selecting a Health Plan. The AIDS Institute, Arthritis Foundation, and National Organization for Rare Disorders (NORD) hosted a press briefing on a harmful new health insurance and Pharmacy Benefit Manager (PBM) policy quietly being slipped into insurance plans and dramatically increasing patient cost sharing for prescription drugs.. As open enrollment is set to begin, beneficiaries must be on the lookout for copay accumulator adjustment programs that deny copay assistance from counting towards a patients annual deductible and out-of-pocket maximum.. The programs can increase patient drug costs by thousands of dollars at the pharmacy counter, leading to treatment abandonment.. Choosing a health plan that best meets a patients needs is already hard enough, particularly at a time of rising deductibles and co-insurance, said Carl Schmid, Deputy Executive Director of The ...
Ten years after becoming law, it is clear that seniors remain happy with their Part D coverage and that the program is meeting their healthcare needs, said Mary R. Grealy, chairman of Medicare Today and president of the Healthcare Leadership Council.. Not only are seniors happy with the Medicare prescription drug benefit, it is a good deal for them - and the system as a whole.. A 2011 study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that American seniors increased access to medicines via the Medicare prescription drug program led to reduced spending on post-acute care such as hospitals and nursing homes.. The study found that Medicare Part D enrollees who had inadequate prescription drug coverage or no prescription drug coverage prior to enrolling in the Part D benefit each saved an average of $1,200 per year, which resulted in savings of $12 billion in federal spending for non-drug costs in the Medicare program.. ...

We study the Medicare Part D prescription drug insurance program as a bellwether for designs of private, non-mandatory health insurance markets, focusing on the ability of consumers to evaluate and optimize their choices of plans. Our analysis of administrative data on medical claims in Medicare Part D suggests that less than 10 percent of individuals enroll in plans that are ex post optimal with respect to total cost (premiums and co-payments). Relative to the benchmark of a static decision rule, similar to the Plan Finder provided by the Medicare administration, that conditions next years plan choice only on the drugs consumed in the current year, enrollees lost on average about $300 per year. These numbers are hard to reconcile with decision costs alone; it appears that unless a sizeab ...

Does Medicare Part D prescription drug coverage help? It depends on the patient. It clearly does help the person on a fixed budget who finds him or herself in need of several medications which might add up to a few hundred dollars a month or more. A healthy but not wealthy 70 year old might have a sudden heart attack and find that he has diabetes which he had known nothing about having not visited a doctor for years. That patient might well be discharged from the hospital on 6 new medications which would throw his budget into an uproar, but might well keep him in good health for years. For patients with fewer needs or more abundant income, prescription drug coverage may do no good at all. For some patients whose ability to afford medications means that they will take ones which adversely affect their health, Part D is a hazard. Certainly 70 billion dollars a year and 11% of the healthcare budget is pretty pricey. The Medicare drug benefit probably needs a major overhaul in light of the data that ...

The annual open enrollment period for Medicare Part D prescription drug coverage runs from November 15 through December 31, and pharmacists are likely to encounter senior patients with questions about choosing the right plan.. With plans changing their offerings from year-to-year, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is urging beneficiaries to review their current plans and look at other options to find the one that best meets their needs. Beneficiaries should have received notice of any coverage changes from their current prescription drug plan by October 31.. Some beneficiaries may see significant premium increases or changes, such as reduced coverage in the gap, if they stay in the same prescription drug plan in 2009, according to Kerry Weems, CMS acting administrator.. A recent analysis of the newly released Part D premiums by staff of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform found that 16.3 million Medicare beneficiaries-92% of all Part D enrollees-will be ...
Despite Medicare Part D protections against catastrophic costs, some beneficiaries will pay thousands of dollars out-of-pocket for a single specialty drug in 2016. A new analysis by researchers at Georgetown University and the Kaiser Family Foundation determined that for 12 specialty drugs used to treat four serious health conditions-hepatitis C, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, and cancer-enrollees will pay between $4,000 and $12,000 out of pocket. Further, the analysis found that a significant share of the out-of-pocket costs for drugs that cost more than $600 per month can be incurred even after enrollees drug spending reaches the drug benefits catastrophic threshold.. Part D prescription drug coverage. Medicare Part D includes a gap in coverage between the initial coverage limit of drugs subject to an annual deductible and coinsurance, and catastrophic coverage after an individual incurs out-of-pocket expenses above a certain annual threshold. The gap between the initial ...
The study results, reported by the Associated Press, point to a potential snag in the Obama Administrations plans for a smooth transition to a reformed healthcare system. According to Avalere and the AP, prescription drug plans serving more than 3 million Medicare Part D beneficiaries may be eliminated in 2011 after the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services completes a plan to cull redundant, higher-cost or less-efficient Part D plans from the federal drug benefit program for seniors.. That could force those seniors to choose a new plan, the AP reported, despite assurances from the White House during the long campaign to pass health-reform legislation that Americans could keep their current health plans if they chose to.. Avalere cited one instance where the change already is occurring. Medicare officials, according to the AP, already have notified such major prescription benefit management plans as CVS Caremark and the AARP that they must pare the number of drug plan options they offer ...

Today we are here at Lowes Pharmacy which was the first pharmacy to sign on with the National Prescription Drug Plan to launch this new initiative, a partnership between public and private sector, so that individuals rather than receiving their medication or waiting in line at the PMH or even some of our public clinics can attend or visit the private sector and receive medicine at a participating pharmacy near to them. This is excellent in that we would no longer see the waiting lines that we see… so on behalf of the Government of The Bahamas I want to officially launch this National Prescription Drug Plan so that beneficiaries can now receive their medication at all the participating pharmacies, Dr. Minnis said ...
Correspondence issued by the Government Accountability Office with an abstract that begins Spending on prescription drugs in Medicaid--the joint federal-state program that finances medical services for certain low-income adults and children--totaled $15.2 billion in fiscal year 2008. State Medicaid programs do not directly purchase prescription drugs; instead, they reimburse retail pharmacies for covered prescription drugs dispensed to Medicaid beneficiaries. The federal government provides matching funds to state Medicaid programs to help cover a portion of the cost of these reimbursements. For certain outpatient prescription drugs for which there are three or more therapeutically equivalent versions, state Medicaid programs may only receive federal matching funds for reimbursements up to a maximum amount, which is known as a federal upper limit (FUL). FULs were designed as a cost-containment strategy and have historically been calculated as 150 percent of the lowest published price for the

We showed that the doughnut hole significantly influences a patients decision to obtain cardiovascular medications. Research in other types of drug benefits suggests the potential for prescriptions to be delayed, switched to another product, or stopped completely when patients are faced with a change in the dynamic of their drug coverage (Gellad et al 2006, Gibson et al 2005, Soumerai et al 2006, Goldman et al 2004, Joyce et al 2002, Huskamp et al 2005, Cox et al 2001, Stuart et al 2005, Rector et al 2004, Hales 2009, Kaiser Family Foundation 2008). Current estimates have the doughnut holes entrance level surpassing $6,000 by the year 2016 (NCPSSM 2008). Therefore, it is important to understand how changes in benefit design affect prescription fulfillment behaviors - and to do so specifically for particular disease states.. Our study populations had a high number of different medications - 17.1 +/- 6.97 SD and 16. 4 +/- 6.48 SD for stand-alone PDP and MA-PD members, respectively. This compares ...

Most private health and Medicare Part D plans cover these vaccinations, but if you have to pay, they cost between $20 and $100.. • MMR (measles, mumps and rubella): Anyone born during or after 1957 that is unsure about their immunization history should receive the MMR shot.
