Before my husband got on the insurance he was on he was having to pay over $1,000 a month for insulin, he was doing stuff he shouldn’t just to be able to pay for it too. He almost went to prison for years upon years just because he had to pay for insulin. His mom pays at least $150 dollars every two weeks on insulin and that’s the ‘cheap’ stuff, the one you can get at Walmart for $25 a bottle. The way the pharmaceutical companies price medicine that people NEED to live is so ridiculous, if they needed the medicine themselves I bet it wouldn’t be that bad.

I have heard that you can get insulin at Walmart without a prescription and it is much cheaper. I don’t know for sure because I don’t need it however if this helps you I will be happy

And it's not just insulin. These drug companies are out to make money at the expense of humanity. And our government thinks this is the best way to serve their constituents. Whatever happened to helping people to help people? Everyone should find little ways to help one another and pay it forward. This is the only way we can change this world for the better!

And pharma CEOs and execs are making more money off of peoples health and lives and they don't care. Money is more important to them than people.

Pure greed by the majority of all the pharmaceutical companies. Last night on 60 Minutes they did a segment on the skyrocketing prices on generics also. The poor and middle class in this country can't win.

Many people have stated it’s cheaper for them to fly once to the border of Mexico cross over and go to the closest pharmacy and buy a years supply for what she is paying for one month now

I've noticed the medications that are life saving and lifetime used versus the ones to maintain a reoccurring effect type medication are different in cost....the lifetime life saving meds costs more.
