I am on social security and have to make painful decision every time I have to buy my insulin, because I will have to do without food or other medicines inorder to purchase the insulin. Profit is way over cost of manufacturing. Diabetics are being robbed without the use of a gun!
We all are. Almost all medication has skyrocketed this year. And it is greed. These pharmaceutical companies are merging to make huge companies that think they can do anything. Isn't your part D paying for it? MIne would be too high of a co pay for me. I'd have to pay 20% and that's still $60. I know I couldn't afford that. And if we have medicare we aren't eligible for assistance a lot of times. Its a heck of a thing when we have to decide whether we have food or our medications. I live in PA and we have a program that helps us with copays. Without that I don't know what I'd do.
It is the cost of doing what the government wants, since Obamo Care is now the controling force in all things medical. The cost of it is being passed on to the customer. Lantus in Canada still costs about $140 and here in the U.S. that came 5 pack will cost you about $300 more. Now lets get something out in the open, this what I am stating has nothing to do with politics this is how it is going to be working from now on. These companies if they want to stay in business have no choice but to pass on the cost or go out of business. Now there is going to be a lot of people saying that it is greed. But look it up yourself, most all of these companies are public traded stocks. So look up there gross net worth and see how much it has jumped, it's hardly moved but when you do a little digging you will find that their operating costs have more than tripled. So it is greed alright but the companies are not the greedy ones
