National Patient Advocate Foundation Responds to N.C. State House Approval of Flawed Cancer Treatment Fairness Bill
Date:5/16/2013

n 2012, 38.8% of the patients who contacted PAF reported difficulty in affording the out-of-pocket costs of their essential medications (Patient Advocate Foundation; Patient Data Analysis Report 2012, p. 144).

According to a Prime Therapeutics' study, patients with an out-of-pocket cost greater than $200 per month were at least three times more likely to not fill their prescription than those with out-of-pocket costs of $100 or less per month. An Avalere Health study also found that almost 10% of patients choose not to fill their initial prescriptions for oral anti-cancer medications due to the high rates of cost-sharing.

The bill is expected to receive a hearing in the Senate Health Care Committee within the next couple of weeks.
