2009 Annual Drug Trends Report Released
The 2009 Annual Drug Trends Report was released recently based on nearly 8 million pharmacy transactions from 2006 to 2008. The report showed that approximately 14% of all workers’ compensation spending goes toward pharmacy cost.
This is because the overall spending for prescriptions increased by 5.4% in 2008 from the year before. There was also a reduction in the availability of generic drugs on top of an increase in drug prices.
If you need workers’ compensation, contact the Des Moines workers’ compensation attorneys of LaMarca Law Group, P.C. at 877-327-2600.
