Challenge the High Cost of Rx Drugs!


Like never before, prescription drug companies are extorting a high cost, both on their pills and on the lives those pills can destroy. Opioids sold by these companies cut too many lives short, while others struggle to afford the very pills they need to live a productive life at all. 

This industry is simply out of control. These pill-pushers spend more on lobbying than almost any interest group, and they reward their executives more lavishly than any health insurer or private hospital. While you may think you see a lot of prescription drug ads, they "market" even more heavily to compel both your doctors and your legislators to keep expensive and dangerous prescriptions flowing.

This is why we at Citizen Action proudly stood with state legislators like Rep Deb Kolste to announce new legislation giving the state the power to challenge skyrocketing costs. But there is much more to do to protect our people's pocketbooks and lives. Together, we can rein in this runaway industry and make healthcare safe and affordable for all!

    MY specialists have ordered the newer hybrid medications because of their effectiveness and less side-effects. But, I can’t afford them so, currently going through a trial and error period to rule out the ones not working before doing an authorization for the new ones. Better remedies should not be costing more; they only divert consumers to other means of care with less result, consequently becoming more ill or dying. The later has its many cost that could be avoided.

    I needed a new Epipen, the one I carried with me had expired. This is a Life or Death importance medication. Why was my price almost $500? It’s hard to justify that kind of expense, just to throw it away in 15 months!

    People do not eat property in order to buy their meds. People go into debt to buy meds they need to survive chronic illnesses. People skip taking their meds as presribed to save on the costs.
