ASHEVILLE -- People concerned about the high cost of the medications their doctors prescribe joined AARP in the Mountain Region at an August public forum on lowering prescription drug costs.
More than 1.2 million family members provide unpaid care in North Carolina, according to the AARP Public Policy Institute. They often tackle challenging duties like medication management and dressing wounds.
RALEIGH—The AARP ‘Stop Rx Greed’ is a nationwide campaign aimed at lowering prescription drug prices. The goal of AARP’s sustained campaign is to help drive down drug prices for North Carolinians and all Americans by advocating for a variety of legislative, executive, and regulatory actions at both the federal and state level.
When it comes to affording the medications our doctors prescribe, we all have heard about cost-cutting measures. Pill splitting, skipping doses, not filling prescriptions, and shopping through online pharmacies are all common practices. However, when it comes to health outcomes and fraud, many of these practices have some serious risks.
