We've seen other examples of the effects of the concentration of wealth in the prescription drug marketplace and the health marketplace in general. For example:
- Unbelievable executive payout in California
- Drugs and the concentration of wealth 2
- Drug prices and the concentration of wealth
- Hospitals and the concentration of wealth
- One of Texas' oldest drugstores [Smith Drug] is selling prescriptions at no profit to uninsured and underinsured customers, a move some industry experts called unprecedented.
- Carla Chandler's insurance covers three of her five medications. For one of the others, she called every nearby pharmacy and said she was quoted about $240 at one store. Smith Drug charged her $16.68.
