Pharma Companies use public funded colleges and universities to do the majority of the testing and research.

Pay to play. Ridiculous. Corruption right in front of our eyes.

Bureaucrats ruin everything, far as I'm concerned they are just slightly better than serial killers and child molesters.

This is part of the reason why American's pay the most for prescription drugs. A corrupt broken system.

How would you disrupt that whole industry?
Could you make a video on that. It might inspire the next Elon Musk / Uber / Jeff Bezos etc.

Why can't the government do something about it? I will ask my senator, Ted Cruz, the next time I see him.

And US citizens get hosed for pharmaceuticals. They would be amazed how cheap they are in Mexico.

Look at the CEO of that Pharma company, he's completely unapologetic about profit and have no concern at all about patients. This is what's gone wrong in America, capitalism above everything else. They don't care about patients (read people), all they care about is the green back.

fire everyone except maker, wholesaler and the pharmacist , give a high rating and Low co-pay on the drugs with best results in people who use them. No rebates ( this will simplify insurance companies having to fiddle with consumer rate setting due to rebate amounts)set rates on age, health,and self imposed unhealthy exposures. Then cut drug costs by 500% … rebates or payoffs?

Well explained. Thank you.

The Insurance companies and PBM are fleecing patients who don't have a choice. The rebate is a kickback bribe to the PBM gatekeeper to gain market access.

Thought it was the other type of drugs

That’s why I buy my cocaine directly from Columbia, I get daily news coverage on how my product is being made.

Why are they so expensive?
Its called Drug money

Why do we even have a formulary? Can't we just buy the drugs that doctors prescribe? Even if doctors are involved in corruption, there would still be some good/honest clinics/doctors that people can trust

In all my reading about this subject, I've come to the conclusion that non-disclosure of pricing is the means that insurance companies and pharmaceutical companies use to eliminate fair-market competition. Their non-disclosure is mutually beneficial, and economically equivalent to a cartel. There's nothing wrong with private insurance companies, but those companies combined price non-disclosure are really the main reasons why the US has its high medicine prices.

The 'invisible hand of the market' making America great again.
