THE ESTIMATED ECONOMIC BURDEN OF PARKINSON’S DISEASE TOPS $52 BILLION

In 2017, the estimated total economic burden of Parkinson’s disease (PD) was $51.9 billion. This includes a direct medical cost of $25.4 billion, and an additional $26.5 billion in indirect and non-medical cost (about $20 billion to persons with PD and another $6.6 billion to unpaid care partners). In 2017, an estimated 1.04 million individuals in the U.S. had PD. Approximately 1.33% of those aged 65 to 74 had PD, 2.18% of those aged 75 and older had PD, compared to 0.29% of those aged 50 to 64 years.
