LGBT People & Access To Prescription Medications

December 4, 2018

Policy Brief

Authors: Brad Sears, JD, Kerith J. Conron

Many Americans worry about the high costs of prescription medications. A recent poll by the Kaiser Foundation found that about 60 percent of Americans report taking at least one prescription medication and the 80 percent of all Americans feel that the current cost of prescriptions drugs is unreasonable. There is currently broad public support for addressing this issue, which is likely to be a focus in the next session of Congress. Using California Health Interview Survey from 2015-2017, this brief provides a snapshot of Californians’ access to prescription medications among LGBTQ and cisgender and straight/heterosexual adults.
