Endocrine therapy initiation among Medicaid-insured breast cancer survivors with hormone receptor-positive tumors.
The researchers sought to characterize endocrine therapy (ET) use in a low-income Medicaid-insured population in North Carolina. They found that, of 222 women meeting the inclusion criteria, only 50 percent filled a prescription for ET. Results suggest substantial underutilization of ET in this population.
