Título: Effects of prescription drug insurance on hospitalization and mortality: evidence from medicare part D / Robert Kaestner, Cuping Schiman, G. Caleb Alexander

Notas: Sumario: We used Medicare administrative data (20022009) and an instrumental variables design that exploits the natural experiment created by the implementation of Medicare Part D to estimate the effect of prescription drug coverage insurance on the use and costs of inpatient services. We find that gaining prescription drug insurance through Part D caused approximately a 4 percent decrease in hospital admission rate, a 25 percent decrease in Medicare inpatient payments per person, and a 1015 percent decrease in inpatient charges. Among specific types of admissions, gaining insurance was associated with significant decreases in admissions for CHF and COPD.
