Seniors reduce or discontinue medications when faced with gap in drug coverage, UCLA study shows

ol of Medicine at the University of Hawaii "Do we really want to use it up on a heartburn or allergy medication? We can also help by thinking twice when writing a prescription. We need to offer patients more choices if there's a less expensive drug that might also be just as good."

This will require a new way of thinking by physicians,. Tseng said. "Instead of saying 'this drug is OK because your insurance will cover it', we need to think 'this drug may cost $60 per month. That's $720 per year. How much drug benefit does my patient have for the year?' If we don't ask these questions, a lot more of our patients will be choosing between going to the pharmacy or the grocery store."
