Impact of a value-based formulary in three chronic disease cohorts.
This study assessed the impact of a value based formulary (VBF) on adherence and patient and health plan expenditures on 3 chronic disease states: diabetes, hypertension, and hyperlipidemia. The investigators measured medication expenditures from member, health plan, and member-plus-health plan (overall) perspectives and medication adherence as proportion of days covered. They conducted an exploratory analysis of medication utilization classifying medications according to whether co-payments moved up or down in the year following VBF implementation.
