Pharmacy Expenditure Up 5.4% for Workers’ Comp
In 2007, workers' compensation pharmacy costs increased by 3.3% from the year before. In 2008, those costs increased another 5.4% from 2007. Today, pharmacy costs are accounting for about 14% of all workers' compensation costs.
These increases in costs have come from a variety of factors. In large part, however, the increases have been caused by the rising cost of drugs and the decreased availability of generic drugs.
