Alzheimer Association Report: Changing the Trajectory of Alzheimer's Disease
Posted on September 14, 2010

This report examines the current projections and costs associated with the Alzheimer crisis, as well as what Medicare and Medicaid savings are possible if disease modifying treatments were available.
From 2010 to 2050, the total costs of care for Americans age 65 and older with Alzheimer's disease will increase five-fold, from $172 billion to $1.08 trillion per year. These dollar amounts represent the direct costs of care to all payers, including Medicare, Medicaid, and out-of-pocket costs to people with the conditions and their families, and costs to other payers (such as private insurance, HMOs and other managed care organizations, and uncompensated care).
