    Medicare & drug insurance plans don't cover most of the new drugs, especially the expensive biologics.

    My urologist wants me to take a drug that costs $5K. I don't have $5K + I've been taking the same drug in a different form for 7 years for $21. The world doesn't make sense any more.

    It affects every American who needs at least one medication made by these insurance companies.
