But because of lobbyist, there's no negotiation of pharmaceutical costs in the US. Every other civilized nation in the world negotiates pharmaceutical costs but not the USA. If you or a family member gets cancer, the medical cost could easily be over 100,000.00 per year. If you need 2 meds the cost could approach 250,000.00 which means if you have 80% coverage...... your share could be as much as 50,000.00 per year.
13 minute video covers 60 minutes story on this very important topic.
This could have an effect on any or perhaps even most of us. For your better understanding on the topic.... I suggest that everyone watches.

Nobody regrets them recovering their investments but at a point, what's best for the public should be an important consideration. I fear for those who will die because they can't afford their medicine any longer. How sad !
