Pain Costs U.S. $635 Billion a Year: Report
Date:6/29/2011

rofessionals are not adequately trained to provide the full range of pain care or to guide patients in pain self-management.
  • Medicare, Medicaid, workers' compensation programs, and private health plans should find ways to cover interdisciplinary pain care.
  • The U.S. National Institutes of Health should designate one of its institutes to take the lead in moving pain research forward and increase the scope and resources of its existing Pain Consortium.
  • Congress requested the study, which was sponsored by the National Institutes of Health. The Institute of Medicine operates under the National Academy of Sciences.

    The U.S. National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke has more about pain.
