  1. Australia is by no means perfect, but I thank my lucky stars that we are all entitled to health care and have a safety net as far as prescription drugs are concerned. This means that people with chronic diseases don’t have to sell the family home to pay for their medication.

    1. My youngest granddaughter has the flu. When she first became ill my daughter took her to the doctor to see if she could get a prescription for tamiflu–a drug that shortens the duration and lessens the symptoms. The prescription cost was $600, so they opted just to let the flu run its course.
      I’ve got a couple of new prescriptions. With my insurance one cost me $118 for a 30 day supply. The other is $487 for 30 days. That’s with my insurance paying the remainder. It’s crazy.
