Drug Spending Continues Outrageous Climb

Specialty medications are designed for people with complex, chronic conditions -- ranging from rheumatoid arthritis to infertility. The annual cost of specialty drug therapy can range from $6,000 to more than $350,000 per patient. Even more drugs are on the way and each new drug has the potential to exceed $1 billion in annual sales. Folks, it has gotten out of control. The drug companies will continue to increase their prices and have the insurance companies "pay" for it, so the end consumer is insulated from the price. This is a "prescription" for disaster and the primary reason that these drugs cost so much. They would never rise to such high prices in a free market.

Fortunately, there is a solution and that is following the simple and inexpensive advice that you receive on this site to address the foundational cause of disease rather than using these expensive Band-Aids whose price continues to rise to astronomical ranges.
