Table 2 The Monte Carlo mean (standard deviation) of the final HbA1c outcomes (Y) and cost per subject and the probability of selecting each AI as optimal (poptAI) for SMART and RCT of sample size n = 100. The simulation size was 10,000. According to the data generation model of the simulation study, AI2 is the truly optimal AI
