Payer Perspective: Adherence

Medication and clinical care adherence are two of the most important actions a patient can take to manage their health. Providers often have limited information on medication adherence. By working with patients on adherence, providers can help patients with the understanding of why medications should be taken as ordered, and build strategies to improve adherence. Patients with chronic conditions need regular and predictable care to ensure they are adequately managing their conditions. People with chronic conditions have care that is typically more expensive than non-chronic members, and well-managed patients often cost significantly less than chronic patients who do not adequately manage their condition. In 2010, $193.4 billion was spent on direct medical costs for heart disease and stroke. Another $157 billion was spent on cancer care, and a further $176 billion was spent on the direct medical costs of diabetes, with another $69 billion in lost productivity due to diabetes (CDC, 2016). Across the board, the cost of chronic illness is very high, but can be mitigated with proper planning and adherence.
