Experimental: Copayment Intervention Arm
Sites in the intervention arm will provide patients with a study voucher card to offset any patient copayments or medication card for the filling of any prescriptions of clopidogrel or ticagrelor.
Other: Study voucher card
Study voucher card to offset any patient copayments or medication costs for the filling of any prescriptions of clopidogrel or ticagrelor
No Intervention: Usual Care Arm
For hospitals randomized to the control arm, all patients receive usual care and no study intervention is performed.
- Major Adverse Cardiovascular Events [ Time Frame: 12 months ]To determine if patient copayment reduction leads to lower risk of MACE (composite of death, MI, and stroke) at 1 year after discharge.
- Long Term Persistence to P2Y12 receptor inhibitor [ Time Frame: 12 months ]To determine if patient copayment reduction leads to higher long-term persistence of any P2Y12 receptor inhibitor at 1 year after discharge.
- P2Y12 receptor inhibitor selection [ Time Frame: 12 months ]To evaluate whether reducing patient copayments for both generic and brand P2Y12 receptor inhibitor options affects medication selection at discharge.
- Healthcare Resource Utilization [ Time Frame: 12 months ]To assess the impact of copayment reduction on the total cost of health care for patients after myocardial infarction.
