Mail delays may affect medication supply for nearly 1 in 4 Americans over 50: Data from National Poll on Healthy Aging show reliance on delivery of medications, often because of insurance requirements


The timeliness of mail delivery may affect access to medication for many middle-aged and older adults, according to a new analysis of data from a national poll of people aged 50 to 80. Nearly one in four people in this age group said they receive at least one medication by mail, but that percentage rises to 29 percent when the poll results are limited to people who take at least one prescription medication.
