We’ve blandly paid the price for drugs with mediocre results and insurers simply raised their premiums. All this was done to maintain an obsolete and confiscatory medical financial system. Drug manufacturer’s have used their patent exclusivity to take advantage and charge whatever they wish for medications with little regard for actual costs of development of the drug or for that matter for it’s actual benefit to patients. Now we are paying the piper as noted in today’s NY Times editorial.
We need a new system to change everything in our health care non-system. It’s killing us.
