It does not elaborate in that much detail other than higher income seniors can get highER risk medications than low income seniors. But what was the outcome for the patients that took a higher risk and probably more aggressive treatment?

The whole problem is COSTs. Too much focus on WHO will pay. That's why they tout studies with Medicare/Medicaid recipients. There trying to say low income senior using state run health care "fare" as well as others with high income private plans. I think the data pool information is poor in regards to this study/story. But that's part of the objective of Obama Care: a data pool.
