Parkinson’s disease psychosis (PDP) is a costly, debilitating condition that generally develops several years after diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease (PD). The neuropsychiatric symptoms that are common in PD can be a significant source of distress to patients and caregivers. This supplement to The American Journal of Managed Care presents managed care decision makers with information on the long-term care utilization by patients with PDP and the overall economic burden associated with PDP.
