    These inflated prices affect mostly the under-served populations and the elderly community. Most people from low income families might not have insurance and the money to pay for medications that they need to maintain their health. The elderly may not have the support and/or money they need to afford expensive medication. This ties into ethics because companies should not put patients’ lives in danger just because of the profits they want to make on lifesaving medications. By pricing medications at such a high cost, this discourages patients from taking their medication, which can cost them their…

    Which means more money for the pharmaceutical industry. The patient is no longer a patient, they are a customer. If the food industry were to produce and regulate legitimate healthy options, we would see a thriving society with less health concerns. America has forgotten the power that food holds with destroying and building your health because we are told that these magical chemically engineered pills can help us, when they don’t. If they did, why do taking some medications pose a risk to contracting another health condition?…

    They don’t have another system to work with, so what else would they use? Ideally, the mental health field wouldn’t need a system, but money and greed are always a part of any industry no matter how pure the industry must be. This industry, out of the many we have, should be one of the most noble, but sadly it is one of the most corrupt. Mental health workers in high status receive a power complex. Some doctors are in for the money when they start prescribing medication.…

    This is one of the problems that can lead to a failure of prescribing only generic salt. Doctor might perform this duty and prescribe the salt to the patient but then it is up to the chemist as to which drug will he provide the patient with. The chemist will compare the profit that he will earn from selling the branded drug or the generic drug. He will definitely be biased to sell the branded drugs because the profit margin in wholesale and retail prices of branded drugs is big. 6.3 Quality Control The generic drugs are not 100% same as the branded drugs.…

    Insurance could also play a part in the introduction of this method because they could pay up to the reference price, if the companies priced the drug higher, then the patient could pay the rest. Under the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA) the government works directly with manufacturing companies to collect money for development and ensures that the drug is safe for use, but because the United States market is not regulated they do not set a price point for the drug during this process. The US market already has a system that is similar to price referencing with Medicare and Medicaid, but that does not help every consumer, just those with that support. The solution in this case would be to open similar regulations that Medicare and…

    As companies have begun to consider research to be exceedingly expensive and time-consuming, they have started to cut back on research and development spending in lieu of the short term profit gains that follow. Even when these companies do produce scientific discovery, it is often skewed towards research that will make money, rather than to fulfill a need. Pharmaceutical industries are notorious for neglecting to devote funds to diseases that don’t affect large enough populations to make a profit (Orphan drugs) or when their market is not rich enough to warrant such research (such is the case with many diseases in developing countries that receive little to no funding from pharmaceutical companies). A more egalitarian system would help these disenfranchised groups to receive the same sort of scientific attention than everyone else. While this problem is blatant in the pharmaceutical industry and has real-world effects, it influences other scientific facets as well.…

    Poor families do not have the means to spend a great amount of money on medical care. Emanuel and Battin stated that: “To many, savings from reduced use of expensive technological interventions at the end of life are both necessary and desirable” (Emanuel & Battin). This is a true statement for all social classes in America, but especially the lower class. It is almost impossible for them to afford that amount of medical care, and that is why physician-assisted suicide is a better option in this case. Patients have some options on what drug they want to take.…

    In the case of prescription medicine there is usually a sole provider and multiple consumers. This is the problem with medicine today. The only way that this drastic increase in price will stop is if there were multiple companies producing these drugs to create competition for consumers. The people who are at the top of the "food chain" are there because of the people. Then to use them as if they are an object is disgraceful.…
