Medicaid's drug expenditures have grown at double-digit inflation rates since 2000. These prescription drug costs are important
contributors to increasing health care costs for disabled persons. In spite of this knowledge, little has been reported about
specific patterns of medication use among disabled enrollees. We analyzed Kansas Medicaid data to describe trends in medication
use patterns across 3 years among disabled beneficiaries.
