Study: Older Americans cutting back on doctor visits and prescription drugs
It looks like older Americans are cutting back on doctor visits and prescription drugs.
That's according to a new study by the IMS Institute for Healthcare Informatics. It suggests many people are struggling to pay for health care.
The study found that older Americans are using fewer medicines, while younger Americans are using more prescriptions.
Researchers say it's due to the new health care law which allows adult children under 26 to be covered by their parents' health care plans.
