Sažetak
Aim To determine the monthly costs of prescription drugs for the treatment of hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, and diabetes mellitus and their share in the total prescription drugs expenditures allowed by the Croatian Institute for Health Insurance. Methodology Hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, and diabetes mellitus were diagnosed in 4, 916 patients in three general practitioner (GP) offices in the Zagreb area in January 2005. The monthly cost of medications prescribed by the GPs for the treatment of these three diseases was obtained by summarizing the prices of all anti hypertensive, lipid-lowering, and antidiabetic drugs prescribed in one month. The monthly medication costs for each disease separately and all three diseases together were compared with the total prescription drug expenditures approved by the Croatian Institute for Health Insurance. Results Hypertension was diagnosed in 1, 112 (22.6%), hypercholesterolemia in 324 (6.5%), and diabetes mellitus in 359 (7.3%) patients. Monthly cost of all medications prescribed for these three diseases accounted for 81.2% of the total amount approved for medications by the Croatian Institute for Health Insurance. Anti hypertensive drugs accounted for 51.1%, antidiabetic drugs for 11.7% for, and lipid-lowering treatment for 18.4%. The medications were prescribed most often to patients older than 65 years (93.6%). Conclusion GPs are strongly obligated by the annual contract with the Croatian Institute for Health Insurance to keep the medication expenses within the approved amount. However, the approved amount is spent mostly on the drug treatment of hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, and diabetes mellitus as the main cardiovascular risk factors.
