Abstract

Background: Low-income children with asthma are less likely to receive inhaled corticosteroid prescriptions that can prevent asthma morbidity. Objective: To determine whether the receipt of inhaled corticosteroids in children with asthma is related to household socioeconomic status and type of drug insurance. Design: Using population-based prescription and health care data from Manitoba, a cohort study of the determinants of receiving new prescriptions forinhaled corti-costcroids was conducted in children treated with asthma drugs. Participants: School-aged children (n = 12481) receiving asthma prescriptions from January 1995 to March 1996 but no inhaled corticosteroid prescriptions in the initial 6-month period. Main Outcome Measures: Household socioeconomic and drug insurance predictors of the probability of receiving a new inhaled corticosteroid prescription from July 1995 to March 1998, following adjustment for disease and healthcare utilization factors. Results: In comparison with higher-income children insured through a provincial cost-sharing drug plan, the adjusted likelihood ratio for a new inhaled corticosteroid prescription was 0.88 (95% confidence interval, 0.80-0.97) in low-income children insured through the same drug plan and 0.82 (95% confidence interval, 0.76-0.88) in children receiving prescriptions at no charge through provincial income assistance or First Nations benefits programs (Winnipeg, Manitoba). Conclusion: Independent of asthma severity, type of drug insurance, or health care utilization patterns, low-income children with asthma are significantly less likely to receive inhaled corticosteroid prescriptions.
