The cost of a new drug is always going to be high, even for someone who’s used to paying for it themselves.
That’s because when a hospital spends the money on the drugs, it has to pay for the supply of those drugs, which can be expensive, and that means it’s always going be on the other side of the equation for the patient.
But with prescription drugs, the burden of the price increases is usually borne by the hospital.
In the past, patients were usually billed directly to the hospital and not the pharmacy, but now hospitals can charge for the drug directly to their patients, too.
The problem is that when hospitals are forced to pay a third party to supply the drugs to their Medicare patients, that third party is usually a pharmaceutical company.
And when pharmaceutical companies are forced by the government to buy their drugs from the pharmacy for a third of the cost, they have to be paying a third part of the costs.
So, for the last several years, pharmaceutical companies have been complaining about Medicare, which is the government’s health insurance program for low-income people, taking on the cost of the drugs that they supply to Medicare patients.
This is called the pharmacy cost.
But if the federal government, through Medicare, is required to pay the pharmacy a third-party’s share of the drug’s cost, that means that if you’re a patient, your Medicare beneficiary is going to end up paying the full cost of your prescription drugs — even if it’s only a small part of it.
