Haemophilia A (HA) is a male-predominant disorder, yet women and girls can have factor VIII (FVIII) deficiency with bleeding events requiring treatment. This study aimed to identify and characterize female patients with HA.
Administrative claims dated 01 January 2012-31 July 2016 were accessed for patients with 18 months' coverage by commercial or Medicare Advantage with Part D insurance. Patients were included by HA diagnoses or treatments and/or bleeding-related diagnoses or procedures, and excluded by haemophilia B or qualitative platelet disorder diagnoses. A sample of charts was examined for bleeding history, HA therapies and bleeding treatments. All-cause healthcare utilization and costs were also described.View Article
