“Study: Younger patients more likely to skip medications”

Article Link

This April 9, 2013 article on the USA Today website talks about a recent study on medication compliance compared between patients over the age of 65 and those under 65 it also looked at the difference between private insurance and those on Medicare and Medicaid.  the findings are interesting yet not overly surprising when I look responses I’ve heard to medication in general when talking to others. The article mentioned an estimated cost to Medicare when they compared the dollars spent on someone taking medication versus someone who didn’t take the medication as prescribed, which I found interesting as well.
