Medicare drug tab $2.55B for older and disabled Ohioans
New research shows most Medicare prescriptions were for conditions associated with obesity.
(FROM DAYTON DAILY NEWS) Elderly and disabled Ohioans were charged nearly $2.6 billion in drug costs in 2010, most of it spent on prescriptions for medications to treat hypertension, high blood pressure and high cholesterol, according to a report Monday from the independent investigative news organization ProPublica.
Ohio pharmacies filled nearly 3 million prescriptions for just two common treatments for high cholesterol and hypertension alone in 2010 at a cost of more than $41 million, based on ProPublica’s examination of Medicare Part D prescription data. Medicare is the federal program that pays for certain health care expenses for the disabled and people aged 65 or older.
Last year about 2 million Ohioans were covered by Medicare. That number amounts to one in six Ohioans enrolled in the federal program, with about 85 percent of them senior citizens.
