Things like this are a major contributing factor to the extreme cost of health care. Wouldn’t you just love to know what that shot cost to make? You know that even at $1,950, the cost of the same shot two floors up at the Scottsdale Cancer Center, big Pharma is making lots of money on this.
The cost of prescription drugs for which there is no generic brand is outrageous. As the article points out, because of his insurance coverages Bob Trent will not have to pay a penny towards this obscene charge.
But, there are people whose medical plans would not cover this. Are we sentencing them to death because they can’t afford a price point that is obviously a case of gauging the ill?
