Abstract:

Background
The Medicare prescription drug coverage, Medicare Part D is offered to beneficiaries starting January 1, 2006. Literature reports the dependence of Assisted Living Facility (ALF) residents on their administrators for Medicare information.
Objectives
To describe the Medicare Part D related educational and enrollment programs at ALFs, to provide relevant Part D information and assess metro and non-metro differences in confidence of ALF administrators about Medicare Part D.
Methods
University of Nebraska Medical Center’s Institutional Review Board classified the cross-sectional exploratory study as “exempt”. The ALF-administrators (n=273) from the publicly available State of Nebraska ALF Roster are being surveyed. Items on the phone survey include questions on: Medicare Part D education of residents, caregivers and staff; type of information resources (including pharmacy services) for educational programs; help for enrollment decisions; and respondent’s confidence about Medicare Part D, helping and directing beneficiaries; and demographics (age, gender, education, metro vs. non-metro county location). Relevant Medicare Part D information is provided and its usefulness to respondents is assessed.
Results
Our preliminary results included 55 ALF-administrator respondents, 96.4% of whom primarily used pharmacies and 85.5% used Medicare-website as educational resources, and 93% found the information provided “useful.” Survey and further analyses are ongoing. Descriptive and inferential statistics (SAS ver9.1, alpha=0.05) of ALF-administrator’s responses will be presented.
Implications
In the absence of prior information, this is one of the first studies that evaluates ALF-administrator’s activities and confidence for Medicare Part D education and enrollment implementation, and has implications for future health insurance education programs.
