When physical and mental health problems co-occur and money gets tight, which prescriptions go unfilled?
Date:4/7/2009

ting not only a person's recovery, but also a company's bottom line. Approximately one third of work-related productivity losses can be attributed to an employee being either unproductive or unable to function at full capacity because of depression. While recommended use of anti-depressants is associated with increased productivity and decreased disability, depression treatment is often complicated by physical disorders (e.g. heart disease, ulcers, hypertension, and asthma) that also require prescription drug treatment.

According to Dr. Dewa, a delay in use could cost an average of $2,924 extra (based on the average hourly wage of $21.66) per worker on depression-related short-term disability.

As Dr. Dewa explains, these findings highlight the dilemma faced by many employers the desire to control rising costs of prescription drug benefits must be balanced with the fact that it's important not to create barriers to treatment. More research is needed to evaluate if drug benefits should be changed for workers on depression-related disability leave, especially those with a chronic physical condition.
