US Department of Health and Human Services, Office of the Inspector General Report: “FDA’s Approval Status of Drugs Paid for by Medicaid” (OEI-03-08-00500, November 2010, .pdf format, 26p.).

Abstract:

We found that 62 percent of drugs paid for by Medicaid in 2008 had an approved application number in the National Drug Code (NDC) Directory. These drugs accounted for 75 percent of total Medicaid expenditures for prescription drugs in 2008. The remaining 38 percent either did not have an approved application number listed or were not in the NDC Directory at all.

FDA’s system for collecting and maintaining drug product and approval information from manufacturers is known as the Drug Registration and Listing System (DRLS). As part of the DRLS, FDA maintains a publicly accessible database of currently listed drugs called the National Drug Code (NDC) Directory. The NDC Directory contains the name; the NDC (i.e., a numeric drug identifier); and the approved application number for each listed drug. The DRLS also includes nonpublic files of pending and discontinued NDCs.

To qualify for Federal payments under Medicaid, drugs generally must be approved by FDA, with certain exceptions. In 2008, OIG received a congressional letter expressing concern that Medicaid pays for drugs that do not meet this criterion and requesting that OIG examine the FDA approval status of drugs paid for by Medicaid. Previous OIG reports found problems with the accuracy and completeness of FDA’s NDC Directory, which assists in determining whether drugs can be paid for under Medicaid.

We used 2008 Medicaid utilization data for prescription drugs, approval and listing data from FDA, and a targeted manual review to determine the FDA approval status of drugs paid for by Medicaid.

We found that there was no approved application number in FDA’s NDC Directory for thousands of drugs paid for by Medicaid. Twelve percent of NDCs under review were listed in the NDC Directory but did not have an approved application number, and an additional 26 percent were not listed in the NDC Directory at all. As a result, Medicaid could potentially pay for drugs that are not approved by FDA. Without accurate approval and listing information, it is impossible to determine whether these drugs were paid for appropriately.

We recommended that FDA improve the completeness and accuracy of the NDC Directory by taking the following steps:  (1) conduct frequent reviews of its NDC Directory to ensure its completeness and accuracy and (2) work with CMS and Congress to seek a legislative or regulatory change that compels manufacturers to list all approved products with FDA before they become eligible for Medicaid payment. In comments on our draft report, FDA generally agreed with our recommendation to improve the completeness and accuracy of the NDC Directory and stated that it is working on several strategies for evaluating and correcting drug-listing data. In comments on our draft report, CMS deferred to FDA regarding the response to our recommendation.

Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research Working Paper: “East Germany overtakes West Germany: recent trends in order-specific fertility dynamics,” by Joshua R. Goldstein and Michaela Kreyenfeld (WP-2010-33, November 2010, .pdf format, 36p.).

Abstract:

Some 20 years after unification, the contrast between East and West Germany provides a unique natural experiment for studying the persistence of communist-era family patterns, the effects of economic change, and the complexities of the process of fertility postponement. After unification, fertility rates plummeted in the former East Germany to record low levels. The number of births per year fell 60 percent. The period total fertility rate (TFR) reached a low of 0.8. Since the middle of the 1990s, however, period fertility rates have been rising in East Germany, in contrast to the nearly constant rates seen in the West. By 2008, the TFR of East Germany had overtaken that of the West. In this paper, we explore why fertility in the East is higher than in West Germany, despite the severe economic situation in the East, whether the East German TFR will increase even further in the future, and whether the West German rate will remain at the constantly low level that has prevailed since the 1970s. This article seeks to shed some light on these questions by (a) giving an account of the persisting East-West differences in attitudes towards and constraints on childbearing, (b) conducting an order-specific fertility analysis of recent fertility trends, and (c) projecting completed fertility for the recent East and West German cohorts. In addition to using the Human Fertility Database, we draw upon Perinatal Statistics, which enable us to conduct an order-specific fertility analysis. This new data source allows us to calculate a tempo-corrected TFR for East and West Germany, which has not been available previously.

Centre d’Etudes de Populations, de Pauvreté et de Politiques Socio-Economiques / International Network for Studies in Technology, Environment, Alternatives, Development [Differdange, Luxembourg] Working Paper: “The current economic and financial crisis: Transformations in work in the Greater Region,” by Franz Clement (Working Paper No. 2010-37, November 2010, .pdf format, 20p.).

Abstract:

In Luxembourg, the portion of cross-border workers amongst wage earners is very high. How are adopted by the Chamber of representatives. Then, they become applicable to all wage earners performing their occupation in Luxembourg, practically one-half of them being cross-border workers.

This paper will try to answer the following questions. Can such a governance model persist if crossborder workers continue to grow? What form of governance should one assign to the Luxembourg labour market with the legal entities and institutions of the Greater Region in order to better involve the cross-border workers in such governance, knowing that they will soon make up the majority? Can the border crossers become the victims of the current crisis? Isn’t there a risk that Luxembourg would find itself in a situation where inside a sovereign state a minority would end up making decisions setting itself over a majority on the labour market? How could one then better integrate the entire workforce in a new form of transnational governance?
