Prescription Subsidies Reduce Breast Cancer Treatment Disparities - National Cancer Institute
Subsidies for prescription drugs can increase the use of hormone therapies among women with early-stage breast cancer, according to the results of a new study. The subsidies may also help to decrease racial/ethnic disparities in the use of these medications, the study found. According to the study authors, the findings suggest that, by improving the likelihood that patients will follow the prescribed treatment (adherence) and continue the treatment for the duration prescribed (persistence) for these adjuvant therapies, prescription subsidies could help reduce the risk of cancer returning in a sizable portion of women.
