It may interest you to learn what an American pays for drugs - vs - a Canadian:
years ago, My Canadian rheumatologist (sp) prescribed Enbril, an
American manufactured drug - for my arthritis. I'll refrain from
singing his praises... suffice to know.. he's the best in the country..
that I chose!!
The Cdn. UHC cost for 8 vials a month. = $ 1,600.00 (Cdn) My cost: = $ 76.00 . (Cdn)
(note if one is poor & or unemployed.. there is NO cost!!)
Now here's the KICKER! What you have to pay in the US!!
US Enbril cost per Vial: $1,500.00 (US)
US Enbril cost for 8 vials (I take) $12,000.00 (US) a month!!!!!!
