One-Third of Uninsured Americans Can't Afford Their Meds, Says Report

One-Third of Uninsured Americans Can't Afford Their Meds, Says Report The report was conducted by the Centers for Disease Control.

It investigated strategies used by people who were prescribed drugs in 2017 to lower their costs.

The study found that 1/3 of uninsured patients could not afford to take their medicine as it was prescribed.

It also found that nearly one in five people asked their physician for cheaper meds.

Among the uninsured, nearly 40% made the same request.

A Kaiser Family Foundation poll conducted in February found that almost 80% of Americans feel that prescription drug costs are unreasonable.
