According to the abstract, relatively little is known about the effects of utilization management on most Medicare Part D beneficiaries. This study will begin to explore the effects of utilization management on beneficiaries’ health outcomes and identify the effect of patients not receiving their drug of choice on health outcomes. Understanding these effects will provide insight into whether or not Medicare should regulate utilization management.
