Percent of Asthma Patients with Oral Corticosteroid Claim

New York Finger Lakes Region

When looking at claims for medications aimed at controlling asthma and preventing symptom flare-ups, there are lower rates in the Focus Area*. For oral corticosteroids, there is a significant gap from the rest of the county, particularly for children. And interestingly, use of corticosteroids appears even higher in the other counties.

*The Focus Area consists of eight high-poverty ZIP codes in the city of Rochester with particularly high concentration of African-Americans and Latinos. See a map of the Focus Area here.
