Study proves the co-pay connection in chronic disease
Date:1/7/2008

re spending when applied to this type of high-value health service.

The new data provide the first rigorous, controlled analysis of the impact of a clinically sensitive health benefit design. Previously, employers such as office-equipment maker Pitney Bowes and the city of Asheville, NC have reported increased adherence and decreased use of health services among chronically ill employees who had their co-pays reduced.

Meanwhile, other employers have launched their own such programs without waiting for a controlled study to convince them of the potential benefits. In fact, the University of Michigan is currently offering free or reduced-price medications and tests to more than 2,000 of its employees and their dependents who have diabetes.

That project, called MHealthy: Focus on Diabetes, is being managed by the Center for Healthcare Quality and Transformation and may produce its first data this year.

When I told my mother about this study, she turned to me and said I cant believe you had to spend all that money to show that if you make people pay more for something theyll buy less of it, says Fendrick. But we needed to show with a carefully done study that if we did lower barriers that people would utilize these essential medical services more. And as always, my mother was right.
