Objective To report an update of the change in usage trends for different surgical treatments of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) among the United States Medicare population data from 2000-2008. The rate of usage of thermotherapy and laser therapy in the surgical treatment of BPH has been changing over the past decade in conjunction with a steady decrease of transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP). Methods Using the 100% Medicare carrier file for the years 2000-2008, we calculated count...

BACKGROUND: Medicare Part D, which provides prescription drug coverage to Medicare beneficiaries, is delivered through either Medicare Advantage prescription drug (MA-PD) plans or stand-alone prescription drug plans (PDPs). MA-PD plans cover both drug therapy and other medical services, whereas PDPs provide prescription drug coverage only. Because of the potential substitutability between prescription drugs and other medical services, MA-PD plans may make greater efforts to improve enrollees’ ad...

This paper examines racial variation in quality of and access to care experi- enced by elderly persons enrolled in Medicare+Choice plans. We used eight individual-level Health Plan Employer Data and Information Set (HEDIS) measures to compare whites with blacks, Asians, Hispanics, and Native Americans. Across all measures, black enrollees re- ceived lower-quality care. Hispanics and Native Americans were less likely to receive some types of care but were as likely or more likely to receive other...

Abstract Immunizing children could reduce influenza in the elderly. We compared pneumonia and influenza hospitalizations (P&I) and medically attended acute respiratory infections (MAARI) in the Medicare populations in 1 Tennessee and 3 Minnesota counties that immunized school children with live, attenuated influenza vaccine with 4 comparison counties. The P&I rate ratio (RR) of intervention county/comparison county in Tennessee in 2005-06 was 0.74 (95% CI 0.61 – 0.87 which was significantly lowe...

This paper considers modelling data arising in post-treatment preventive care settings, where cancer patients who have undergone disease-directed treatment discontinue seeking preventive care services. Clinicians and public health researchers are interested in explaining such behavioural patterns by modelling the time-to-receiving care while accounting for several patient and treatment attributes. A key feature of such data is that a noticeable number of patients would never return for screening...

Purpose: We describe the trends in transurethral prostatectomy and minimally invasive surgical treatments for benign prostate hyperplasia from 1999 through 2005 among elderly male Medicare beneficiaries.Materials and Methods: Benign prostatic hyperplasia surgeries were identified using the annual 100% Medicare carrier files which contain physician claims for services reimbursed under Medicare Part B. The annual age group specific procedure rates as well as the age adjusted rates by race and perc...

Objective The purpose of the study was to determine whether women who survived uterine cancer received 4 recommended preventive services (mammography, colorectal cancer screening, influenza immunization, and bone density testing) at the same rates as women with no history of cancer. Study Design We used the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results–Medicare database to compare the rates among survivors aged 67 years or older with a matched group of women with no history of cancer. Results Surv...

Abstract OBJECTIVE: To determine if the use of non-diabetes-related preventive services (mammography, colorectal cancer screening and bone density testing) among elderly diabetic women is different than the use among women without diabetes. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: Using a representative sample of the U.S. elderly female population, the linked SEER/Medicare files, we identified women with or without diabetes who were ≥ 67 years of age on January 1, 1999. All women with a prior history of can...
