Abstract:

Healthcare payers and providers are reconsidering the role of patient cost-sharing in chronic diseases. However, no recently published studies have looked specifically at heart failure, and none has used nationally representative data. This study examines whether cost-sharing for heart failure treatment is associated with adherence in a national Medicare sample.
