Medicine is a racket

February 5, 2015

The whole medical “thing” is a racket. Lately when I have gotten my prescriptions refilled it lists the real amount. I take three medicines, two of which I “need” and the other well not so much.

The total costs of all three a month would be slightly over $300. What is crazy is Keppra is nearly 200 and its not one that I “need”. The other two that I have taken forever are 60 and 40ish respectively.

I watched a documentary the other day and they were talking about the crazy costs of American healthcare and how many people go overseas to get treatment for a third or less than the cost here.

The place featured wasn’t what you are thinking. It looked like a five star hotel and overlooked the ocean and had the newest technology. In America, the medical field is an open game on what to charge.

Some kind of regulation needs to happen but with our current state of medical x,y,z it may be better to go overseas.
