High impact information on Cost Sharing

  • Cost sharing is somewhat lower in self-insured PPO plans [1].
  • CONCLUSIONS: Large increases in medication cost-sharing were associated with immediate and persistent reductions in OH use [2].
  • Cost-sharing information was also obtained from Blue Cross. Physician supply data were obtained from The University of Iowa, Office of Community-Based Programs. Hospital data were reported by the Iowa Hospital Association. STUDY DESIGN [3].
  • Multivariate methods were used to relate OTC use (collected from bi-weekly health diaries) to cost sharing and demographic variables [4].
  • Using a representative sample of Pennsylvania Blue Shield children insureds during 1980, we estimate cost-sharing effects on dental demand for basic (diagnostic, preventive, restorative, endodontic, and extraction services) and orthodontic care [5].
