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%!

We don’t know who still needs to hear this, but capping co-pays and/or deductibles Does NOT lower drug prices! What this DOES do is let Big Pharma off the hook for their excessive prices and results in higher health care premiums for all. #TheProblemIsThePrice

If you feel like prescription drugs keep getting more and more expensive, you’re right. “Drug prices are much, much higher than in the past.” - @EricSFierce in @FierceHealth In fact, drug launch prices are up 85x compared to 2008. #TheProblemIsThePrice
