Looking at the Brand and Generic mix of diabetes drugs based on payer, I notice 3 things:

  • No significant geographic variance based on looking at a few regions
  • People who pay cash are much more likely to choose generics while those with limited difference in copays (Medicaid) are more likely to choose brands
  • Not a significant difference between Medicare and Commercial

In another view of the data, I looked at the brand and generic mix by age.  Interestingly, it shows differences by geography especially in the younger ages.  It also shows a clear correlation of age and generic utilization.
