Fibromyalgia and the event of Economic Burden

Fibromyalgia is expensive for the individual as well as for society. A 2007 study showed that 34% of fibromyalgia patients spend between $100 and $1000 a month over their health insurance. The costs in the US are estimated between 12-14 billion dollars per year by prominent researchers and experts at fibromyalgia and represent a 1-2 percent decreased overall national productivity.

A study published in the Rheumatology Journal in 2003:

• Fibromyalgia claimant’s total annual costs were over twice that of the typical recipient insurance.

• The disability prevalence was twice that of all employees with fibromyalgia.

• Employers have spent about $50-$ 100 on additional direct and indirect costs for each dollar invested in Fibromyalgia specific claims.

Additional studies show:

• 1,668 FM patients have been informed of a working and disability status of 25% receiving disability payments. (Wolf, J. Pain. 1993) (Wolf)

• If a true case of fibromyalgia is not diagnosed, the costs are inherent to them, in large part in over-visits to practitioners, investigations and recommendations. (March 2008). Annemans, Arthritis & Rheumatism.

• The use of alternative and complementary medicines is 2? In FM patients times higher. Lind, Rhumatism & Arthritis. February 2007.

• In 2012, the NFA conducted a study together with Health Focus, Inc., to investigate out-of-pocket treatment expenses.
