1 Comment

On August 18, 2016, CMS released prescription drug data to the public for the second year in a row. The privacy-protected data set contains information on prescription drugs covering 38 million enrollees during calendar year 2014 and was produced in part by Acumen’s Part D team! The roughly $121 billion in prescription drug spending under the Medicare Part D Program in 2014 represents a 17% increase over the previous year. New this year are aggregated groups focused on prescription drug categories of interest including opioids, antibiotics, antipsychotics, and the use of high-risk medications in the elderly.

A CMS produced fact sheet on the 2014 Medicare Part D prescriber data is located here.

The 2014 Medicare Part D prescriber data, including links to interactive data sets, is available here.
