We drew the enrollee sample from a flame of all Medicare beneficiaries who were enrolled in any of the State pharmacy assistance programs on November 1, 2003.
While some states did act to help citizens find reasonably priced drugs, it would be wrong to conclude that state-based programs are simply "sweeping the country." In a number of states, from South Dakota to Washington to Mississippi, West Virginia, Colorado and Wisconsin, proposed pharmacy assistance programs were turned down or "put on hold" by legislatures.

To examine the change in retail prices from 2000 through 2004, we obtained usual and customary (U&C) prices from two state pharmacy assistance programs for drugs frequently used by Medicare beneficiaries and non-Medicare enrollees in the 2003 Blue Cross and Blue Shield (BCBS) Federal Employee Program (FEP).
Medicare also is trying to ease enrollment by letting state pharmacy assistance programs in some circumstances automatically enroll low-income Medicare beneficiaries in the card program and for a $600 prescription drug subsidy.
LESSON FROM THE STATES State pharmacy assistance programs offer lessons for managing program costs and including medication errors while ensuring access to prescription drugs for low-income elderly and disabled enrollees, according to a new report by the Commonwealth Fund.
In addition, premiums, up-front fees, and long application forms generally drive down enrollment in state pharmacy assistance programs, Commonwealth researchers said.
The corporations that sell these medications offer people outstanding--and expensive support: telephone hotlines, training in injection technique, publications, educational conferences, savvy counseling about getting the most from insurance or pharmacy assistance programs, and limited financial assistance to the underinsured and overwhelmed.
As of mid-1999, 16 states had created pharmacy assistance programs with several common features.
Another approach introduced by Representatives Benjamin Cardin (D-MD), William Coyne (DPA), Pete Stark (D-CA), and Sander Levin (D-MI) would "provide Medicare beneficiaries a prescription drug benefit for certain chronic conditions: hypertension, diabetes, congestive or ischemic heart disease, major depression, and rheumatoid arthritis." (3) This program is modeled after the pharmacy assistance programs in many states that cover needed prescription drugs for underserved populations.

Physicians can also play a role in boosting enrollment rates in state pharmacy assistance programs by giving out applications for the program and referring patients to the appropriate places for more information.
