The problem is many people have their prescriptions covered by insurance and just pay the copay . They don't care about the real cost . Insurance companies don't care either . They just raise policy rates . But now you see how WalMart can have those $4 prescriptions .
Well all i know is many people are working jobs they hate because of the health insurance offered by big corps.

Doctors bury their mistakes.
