Say you've had a heart attack and your insurer offered you free medicines to help prevent another one. Doctors did that in a major study and were stunned to find that only about half of patients took them.
Give people free prescription drugs and many of them still won't bother to take their medicine.
"Adherence in America is miserable," lamented Dr. Eric Peterson of Duke University, who had no role in the study.
He noted that only 10 percent of the patients were taking all the medicines they should one year after a heart attack.
