  • Damn Germany medical system

    I've been put on a new med for my cancer. What a joke for a retiree on a fixed income. For a month supply it cost 3,568.30 Euro. Damn I'd be broke within a couple months.

    Try getting that same medication in the US. I can guarantee that it will cost you far more then what you are paying if you don't qualify to get it under Medicaid or from the VA.

            Sadly, price gouging by big Pharma is nothing new. Remember Martin Shkreli? CEO of Turing Pharmaceuticals who increased the cost of anti-Aids drug Daraprim from $13.50 to $750 a pill. The new Pharma azzwipe is Robert DiCrisci, CEO of NextSource Biotechnology who raised the price for Lomustine from $50 a capsule to $768. Lomustine is used to treat brain tumors, lung cancer and Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

                  Hope it works.

                  On the wider point of cost, doesn’t your insurance pay? The German health system is often touted as being better than the NHS here. However my father’’s cancer drug costs $9000 every three weeks ( it is imported from the US) of which he pays nothing.

                    It’s an interesting world we live in where some people Rich or poor pay nothing for health insurance while other people rich or poor have to pay exuberant costs.

                    When it comes to health care in our world it depends on a number of things, what country do you live in or you self-employed , If you do have an employer do they provide health insurance and if so is it top-of-the-line middle of the line or bottom of the line

                    Sometimes I feel that luck is not real other times I feel that it clearly is real When one looks at healthcare and other various issues in our world

                      Oh people do pay for it - through the tax system - in Britain we have National Insurance which is paid by both employees and employers and is income determined
