Interviews

To reconstruct the legislative process surrounding the creation and passage of the 2003 Medicare Modernization Act, we relied on an array of primary and secondary sources. Supplementing these efforts and aiding in their interpretation were 35 interviews that we conducted with individuals who were either involved in the development of the bill or who were close observers of the process: Congressional staff and several members of Congress; executive branch staff; lobbyists and officers from the pharmaceutical, insurance, and other involved industries; representatives of consumer and senior citizen interest groups; think tank analysts; and other learned observers. Most of these interviews took place during 2006 and 2007. Most of these informants spoke on background; endnotes identify interviewees who were willing to be quoted on the record.

Knowledge Networks provides an Internet-based nationally representative probability sample by drawing an original sample through Random Digit Dialing (RDD) and then providing WebTV units and free Internet connections to the sample. The sample used for the MMA Panel Survey consisted of KN panel participants aged 65 and over as of December 2005.

We conducted the baseline survey December 15–27, 2005, just prior to the January 1, 2006, beginning of the Part D drug program. The baseline survey
