Prescription Costs On The Rise

Americans reach deeper into their pockets to pay for prescription drugs.

According to the National Patient Advocate Foundation, almost a third of the people it helped with medical bills last year cited rising drug co-payments at their top medical debt problem.

In some cases, patients have to pay a percentage of the prescription, instead of a flat fee. That can cost families dealing with chronic illnesses hundreds of dollars per month.
