MedHelp Maine Seeks Data on Unaffordable Medicines
Do you have patients who can't afford to fill their prescriptions or who skip doses or split tablets to save money? Does this medication nonadherence result in avoidable hospitalizations and compromised health?
As many as 30% of prescriptions are never filled and 50% of medications for chronic diseases are still not taken as prescribed. This medication nonadherence is not only a problem for the low-income uninsured, but increasingly also a concern for Medicare beneficiaries and other insured individuals with high deductibles and copays. It results in at least 10% of all hospitalizations and more deaths than from opioid overdose, diabetes, influenza and pneumonia, or kidney disease.
If you are a regular prescriber of medicines for adult outpatients, please help develop solutions by completing this brief survey. https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/CWTXZM8
