Millions Skip Taking Medications Due to High Cost

Medications do not work if you do not take them. Some people forget to take them or do not take them because of side effects.  A survey conducted  by NCHS researchers Robin A. Cohen and Maria A. Villarroel, found that about 8% of adult Americans don’t take their medicines as prescribed because they can’t afford them.

The Huff Post reported nearly 25 percent of uninsured people didn’t take their prescription drugs as recommended in 2011, compared to about 19 percent of privately-insured people and 15 percent of those on Medicaid.  Compared to wealthier Americans, poor and near-poor Americans were twice as likely to skip out on their medication in order to save money.

Drug prices are cheaper in Canada, where an independent quasi-judicial body is supposed to ensure that pharmaceutical companies do not charge excessive prices.
