Survey: More than Half of Patients Avoid Taking Medicine Due to Cost

February 20, 2020

A recent survey conducted by Surescripts, in partnership with Engine Group, suggests a little more than half of U.S. patients avoid taking medication due to high prices.

The online survey included responses from 1,001 patients in the U.S.

“This survey demonstrates that today’s patients are indeed quick to consider prices and change providers to get their desired experience, and prescription price transparency is a powerful way to meet their expectations,” the report states. “To do so, we need to equip and empower providers to access accurate, patient-specific medication price and coverage information at the point of care—and then get the right medication into the patient’s hands without delay. Patient outcomes and satisfaction depend on it.”
