Enough to Make You Sick: Prescription Drug Prices for the Elderly

Released on June 12, 2001 by Families USA, a national, nonprofit organization that advocates high-quality, affordable health and long term care for all Americans, this study finds that "last year and during the past 5 years, the prices of the 50 drugs most commonly used by older Americans have increased considerably faster than inflation." The report also demonstrates that the most expensive drugs are among the most commonly prescribed and that generic drugs are generally rising in price at much slower rates than brand-name drugs. Users may read the full text of the report in .pdf format at the FamiliesUSA site.
