Can’t get your prescription covered by insurance? Blame Big Pharma.
As medical malpractice attorneys, we see all the bad parts of our health system. Like many of us, some of our clients in Tallahassee and throughout North Florida have had to change medications because their insurance company stopped covering a specific drug. And, as is mentioned in this article, sometimes a substitution simply doesn’t work as well.
For over 30 years, the personal injury lawyers at Barrett, Fasig & Brooks have watched insurance companies try to avoid paying for claims. It’s not surprising to learn the insurance companies are battling the pharmaceutical companies over costs. However, this highlights that both the insurance companies AND the pharmaceutical companies are more interested in making a profit than they are about the health of the consumer.
