Abstract
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.
