Medicare Market Share of Mail-Order Diabetic Testing Strips: October-December 2016 - Mandatory Review

OIG is required to report the market share of diabetic testing strips (DTS) before each subsequent round of the competitive bidding program pursuant to section 1847(b)(I0)(B) of the SSA. This first data brief (OEI-04-16-00470), part of a series of three reports, determined the market share of DTS for the 3-month period immediately preceding the implementation of the National Mail Order Recompete on July 1, 2016 (i.e., April through June 2016). The second report (OEI-04-16-00471) was for the 3-month period immediately after implementation (i.e., July through September 2016). The third report will be for a similar time frame 6 months after implementation (October through December 2016). These data will help Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services determine how the National Mail Order Recompete may impact shifts in the market. This is the second time we will conduct this series of three DTS market share reports.
