A total of 15,043 people were followed for just one year. Of that combined group, 73.9 % were adherent to their medication and 26.1 % were non-adherent. While those individuals adherent to DM medicine experienced higher pharmacy costs which resulted in an boost in the overall total cost of care , those sticking with medicines were found to get a 31 % lower threat of hospitalization and significantly lower general medical costs than the non-adherent group.
