Disease relevance of Insurance Coverage


Psychiatry related information on Insurance Coverage


High impact information on Insurance Coverage

  • CONCLUSIONS: Access to GH therapy differs depending on the type of insurance coverage [5].
  • DATA--HMO market penetration was calculated using discharge abstract data on insurance coverage, ZIP code of residence, and hospital of choice for 3.35 million patients in 1983 and 3.41 million patients in 1988 [6].
  • There were no significant differences between cases and controls in age, sex, insurance status, mean CD4 count, history of oral candidosis, presence of a previous AIDS-defining illness, the number of visits to the HIV-outpatient clinic, or use of antiretroviral therapy [7].
  • Ninety-nine patients who met American College of Rheumatology criteria for SLE were randomly sampled at each center, balancing by race and insurance status [8].
  • BACKGROUND: Increasingly, government mandates require insurance coverage of blood glucose monitors and test strips for patients with type 1 and type 2 diabetes [9].

Anatomical context of Insurance Coverage

  • Rather than allowing for more time for natural conception or IUI, the couple decided to proceed with IVF because of insurance coverage before semen parameters normalized [10].

Associations of Insurance Coverage with chemical compounds


Gene context of Insurance Coverage

  • On the basis of the number of positive results ascertained in the tested group, we estimate that approximately half of patients declining testing because of insurance coverage concerns would be positive for a BRCA mutation [16].
  • Clinical stage (p = 0.001), Gleason sum tumor grade (p = 0.0001), educational level (p = 0.001), and household income (p = 0.03) were also associated with mean PSA levels; age, type of biopsy, and insurance status were not [17].
  • This study examines the offer and penetration rates of catastrophic coverage insurance products, including high-deductible PPO and consumer-driven health plans, among large California employers before the Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement, and Modernization Act of 2003 was passed [18].
  • This article examines the influence of insurance coverage on the selection of over-the-counter (OTC) and prescribed (Rx) medicines in treating less serious health problems [19].
  • These differences could be expected to be attenuated by the expansion of Medicare to include a drug benefit (Part D), which will increase insurance coverage for DMAs and reduce the out-of-pocket burden of MS therapies [20].
