We will examine whether and by how much patients’ ability to pay, medication complexity, and distance to pharmacies affects their use of outpatient cancer therapy pills. We will examine these all together to understand their relative importance, and finally, estimate how much different policy strategies to reduce the barriers could reduce their risk of dying.)
