How Much are Medicare Beneficiaries Paying Out-of-Pocket for Prescription Drugs.

How Much are Medicare Beneficiaries Paying Out-of-Pocket for Prescription Drugs by Mary Jo Gibson, Normandy Brangan, David Gross, and Craig Caplan (Public Policy Institute of AARP). This issue paper presents data on out-of-pocket spending for outpatient prescription drugs by Medicare beneficiaries, placing the spending in terms of total out-of-pocket health care spending. It examines projected average drug spending in 1999, then focuses on the characteristics of beneficiaries with "high" ($500 to $999) and very high ($1,000) levels of spending compared with those with low to moderate spending (less than $500).
