All About Money: The Ways Insurance Companies Try To Screw You

Hiked-Up Prescriptions

This is why prescriptions are constantly going up in price, which is especially bad news for you if you can no longer afford insurance or you are dropped for whatever reason. Take for instance Martin Skhreli, the former CEO and co-founder of Turing Pharmaceuticals and the bio-tech company named Retrophin.

Skhreli skyrocketed to fame after Turing gained the manufacturing license for the durg Daraprim, which is an HIV/AIDS medicine. He raised the price from $13.5 to a shocking $750 per pill. This is a medication people need to survive! How could someone be so unbelievably uncaring about human lives?
