Americans pay, by far, the highest prices for prescription drugs in the entire world. In 2014, nearly one in five Americans between the ages of 19 and 64 – 35 million people – did not fill their prescriptions because they did not have enough money. In the wealthiest country in the history of the world, Americans should not have to live in fear that they will go bankrupt or die because they cannot afford to take the medication they need.
Have you seen the price of your medicine go up/increase? How has this impacted you and your family? Are you splitting pills in half to make your prescriptions last longer? Have you had to stop taking medicine altogether in order to pay other bills? Have specific generic drugs you take shot up in price? Sen. Sanders wants to hear from you.
