Understanding pharmacy spending by heart failure (HF) patients requires an evaluation of the complex interactions between members, payers, and manufacturers in Part D.

The portions of spending attributable to the member, pharmaceutical manufacturer, Part D plan, and federal government can vary dramatically.
