Abstract

Our study compares expenditures for Medicare covered medical services among enrollees in three State pharmacy assistance programs with spending among low-income residents eligible or near-eligible for, but not enrolled in such State-sponsored programs after controlling for between-group differences in demographic, socioeconomic, health status, and insurance status characteristics.
