Impact of Medicare Prescription Drug Part D Coverage on Dual Eligibles and Drugs for the Elderly Enrollees and on the Organizations that Serve Them


The authors studied the early impact of Part D on older or disabled Medicaid beneficiaries who had prescription drug coverage prior to Part D through MaineCare ("dual eligibles") or the DEL benefit; local and statewide organizations that work with and advocate for Medicare beneficiaries, which often stepped forward to help make Part D work for the beneficiaries; and Medicare beneficiaries who were not duals or DEL enrollees.
