KC's Story – Savings from Generic Medicines

On a birthday trip to Chicago, KC found herself in the emergency room with a diagnosis of “off the charts” high blood pressure. Her doctor prescribed a few generic medicines that help her manage her condition. “It’s just not an issue for me anymore,” KC says. “I’m on Medicare, and when I pick up my prescriptions, it doesn’t cost me anything. That’s a pretty good deal.”

Because tens of millions of Americans entrust their health to generics and biosimilars, they saved $338 billion in 2020, and nearly $2.4 trillion in the last decade.
