Prescription Drug Costs Are Driving Up California Health Care Premiums

Drug companies are continuing to raise prices with no accountability, causing the price of health care to increase for all.

Higher Drug Prices = Higher Premium Costs

RunawayRx is proud to announce the launch of its newest campaign effort, Big Pharma Grocers, the only grocery store whose everyday high prices answer the question, “What if Big Pharma set the prices of our household essentials using the same tactics they use to price their drugs?”
With the data we’ve compiled from the California Department of Health Care Access and Information’s quarterly prescription drug cost transparency reports, Big Pharma Grocers applies the same price increases to household essentials that Big Pharma applies to their medications. We use the same reasons too, including “a change in market dynamics” and sometimes, we give no reason at all.
At Big Pharma Grocers, items like milk, bread, eggs, and more are given a Big Pharma pricing makeover with pricing tactics that increase the cost of essential grocery items by up to 1,452%!

Capping insulin co-pays will not affect drug prices, no matter what #SB473 supporters claim. It will just pass along costs to consumers in the form of higher premiums. #TheProblemIsThePrice https://t.co/K25G8guY15
The Golden Rule: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

#BigPharma’s Golden Rule, from @RobertPearlMD’s exposé: “it’s a moral requirement to make money when you can … to sell the product for the highest price.” #TheProblemIsThePrice

Big Pharma doesn't want to stop hiking prices because it will hamper "R&D." What good are new cancer drugs if people on Medicare can't even afford what's currently offered? #TheProblemIsThePrice https://t.co/3Q2bJcXIxc
