Pharmaceuticals represent a significant portion of overall health care expenditures in both countries. In both Canada and the United States, most individuals depend on private insurance to cover the costs of prescribed medicines or they pay out of pocket. In Canada, the costs of prescribed medications for those aged 65 and over are partially covered by public insurance. Based on results from the JCUSH, most individuals aged 18 and over had private insurance for prescription medications in Canada (77%) and the U.S. (79%). (Table A.17)

Overall, over half of respondents in both countries reported that they had taken a prescription medication in the past month. The reported use was higher among those 65 years of age and older than among younger respondents and higher among women than men regardless of age. (Table 4)

The only significant difference between the two countries was among those 45-64 years of age. Overall, 68% of Americans in this age group reported prescription medication use compared with 61% of Canadians. The difference was true for both men (63% vs. 55%) and women (74% vs. 66%). (Table 4)
