This request assesses patterns in insulin product use and billing codes in the Sentinel Distributed Database (SDD). This analysis includes two reports:
- Report 1: We assessed counts of individuals with dispensings or administrations of specific insulin products overall, by calendar month, and by type of insurer. We also examined patterns of concomitant codes for multiple insulin products among the same individuals.
- Report 2: We investigated insulin billing code patterns.
The study period includes data from January 1, 2013 to December 31, 2018. We distributed this request to 16 Data Partners on March 17, 2020.
