HealthMedia and Aetna to Study Online Insomnia and Depression Interventions

According to one study, Americans filled more than 35 million prescriptions for sleeping pills in 2004, spending $2.1 billion. Studies predict these costs to double by the end of the decade. Golinkoff confirmed that Aetna's prescription insomnia medication costs have been steadily increasing as well, and is looking to the HealthMedia program to see if a Web-based based, cognitive behavior change program can decrease member reliance on sleep medications.
