Yeah the pharmaceutical companies are making a killing and we’re still suffereing. Hundreds of thousands of Medicare recipients hit the “donut hole” where they become responsible for the next $3,000 dollars worth of medications. More coverage at Pharmalot.
I wrote a few days ago that GSK would be paying for my drugs. Well, it turns out we made about $500 too much last year. So I have to come up with the cash after all. Maybe, just maybe, I’ll be off drugs next year before the “donut hole” hits again. Damn euphemism…it sounds so cute and innocent doesn’t it?
It’s a sickening racket. I hate capitalism.
