A Comparison of Pharmacy Dispensing Channel Use and Adherence to Specialty Drugs Among Medicare Part D Beneficiaries.

08:00 EDT 1st April 2018 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "A Comparison of Pharmacy Dispensing Channel Use and Adherence to Specialty Drugs Among Medicare Part D Beneficiaries."

Nonadherence to specialty drugs has been associated with poor clinical and economic outcomes. Studies conducted using commercial health plans suggest that patients who use specialty pharmacies have higher adherence compared with patients using retail pharmacies. However, little is known about the frequency of dispensing channel use or the association of dispensing channel use with adherence to specialty drugs among Medicare Part D beneficiaries.
