About the Book

The Product Incentive Plan (PIP) was introduced in British Columbia in July 1990 and offered pharmacists financial incentives for generic drug substitution. Using PIP as a case study, this study analyzed pharmacist responses to financial incentives and the amount of relative savings achieved through generic substitution across five different pharmacy types and seven therapeutic classes. Data consisted of 1.5 million Pharmacare prescription insurance claims records for BC seniors from January 1988 to June 1994. Linear regression was employed to model the relative savings while logit regression was used to model the probability of generic substitution. Overall the PIP was responsible for a 47.5% increase in the relative savings and a 43.4% increase in the probability of generic substitution. Probability of generic substitution and relatives savings were highest for beta blockers, NSAIDs, antidepressants and anti-asthmatics class of drugs and chain, franchise and med/clinic pharmacies.
