Pharmaceutical costs–what’s behind them

I have been recovering from my hip replacement surgery with a few post surgical complications from another ailment.  That said, I could not resist sharing this link from the Kaiser Family Foundation news service. They are a 501© 3 non-profit organization and are not politically active.  This article is by a veteran journalist whom I respect.  I hope you find the article of interest.  The recent ‘epipen’ price is a case in point with its 400% increase. I was talking with a teacher friend over the weekend and their school system cannot afford to buy one.  You may wish to share this article with your elected representatives.

Coming next some tribute for the doctors and nurses who provide seamless and compassionate care.
