Cancer Drug Use and Spending to Rise Sharply by 2013
Date:5/18/2011

in said. "The number of people in the U.S. being treated for diabetes is expected to increase from nearly 25 million today to 44 million by 2035. Lifestyle changes, especially diet and exercise, need to be emphasized in order to address the financial and health care burden brought about by this disease."

Respiratory, rheumatological, neurological and ADHD drugs were other key categories for driving spending growth. Generic versions of treatments for migraines, seizures and ulcers helped moderate prescription spending. Cancer treatments ranked seventh among the key drivers of costs for pharmacy benefit plans, but much of the costs for these drugs are not reflected in the Medco Drug Trend Report, since these treatments are often covered under major medical benefits.
