Seniors in U.S., Canada skip prescriptions due to cost

UPI featured UBC research that found seniors from 11 high-income countries were not filling doctor’s prescriptions because of the cost.

Steve Morgan, the study senior author and a professor at UBC’s school of population and public health, said these patients may end up with worsening conditions which costs the health care system more money in the long term.

The research was also featured on Science Daily.
