Percentages of individuals receiving cumulative or continuous polypharmacy, taking into account fixed dose drug combinations and three-month packagings (France, 2013)

Field: Health insurance beneficiaries (except those affiliated to local branches (SLM)) aged 75 years old or more with at least one reimbursement of pharmacy per quarter in 2013.

Source: Permanent sample of health insurance beneficiaries (EGB).

Reading: The percentage of individuals receiving polypharmacy at the threshold of 10 medicines is 40.5% for cumulative polypharmacy (all treatments combined) and 33% for continuous polypharmacy (chronic treatments only).

Note: Taking into account three-month packagings does not affect cumulative polypharmacy.
