Soaring prescription drug costs pose a challenge for providers and patients alike, creating second- and third-order effects for all stakeholders in the healthcare industry. A recent OptimizeRx drug cost survey reported that patients raise the issue of prescription costs with providers almost 40% of the time and that 91% of physicians believe they have a responsibility to address healthcare costs with their patients.
"73% of physicians said that the patient’s out-of-pocket drug costs factor heavily into their prescribing decisions, but without collaboration with pharma, they lack the resources to consider price when making decisions."
