Healthcare costs could impact blood pressure

Posted: Updated:

Lowering the cost of drugs could help patients control blood pressure according to a new review of more than 50 published studies.

The review found a link between reduced co-payments for healthcare, including medication, and better blood pressure control.

The study also showed having health insurance that covers routine physicals is also linked to improved blood pressure.

Researchers conclude that expanding insurance coverage and reducing out-of-pocket costs could have a significant impact on the health of Americans.
