ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the fallouts of the limits placed on drug benefits for Medicare patients in the U.S. According to a comparative study of the patients with a $1,000 annual drug benefit cap and those with no cap on their drug benefits in 2003, the cap reduced spending on prescription drugs. But it has caused some negative impacts on overall health of the patients. In effect, these patients could not save money as their spending on non-drug-related medical costs increased.
